11-10-2020 15:00

Nestle is a big Swiss food company. The company makes very many products. Nestle is starting to make new products now. It is pet food. But it is different. It is pet food from bugs.

The company believes that it is important to eat less meat. Food from bugs is better for the environment. Many people care about the environment today. Nestle hopes that these people will buy pet food from bugs.

Some Swiss supermarkets sell snacks and burgers from bugs. But they are for people and not for pets. It will be possible now to buy pet food from bugs, too.

Nestle says that it is a good time now. People spend a lot of time at home with their pets. People and their pets become closer friends. People do not mind if they buy more expensive pet food.

Difficult words: pet (an animal that someone keeps at home), bug (a beetle, spider or other small animal), environment (the natural world).
