Pet Food from Bugs – level 2

11-10-2020 15:00

The Swiss company Nestle is introducing new pet food products this month.

Nestle is starting to make a special type of dog food from fly larvae because it lowers how much meat they need to use. Nestle believes that bug-based food is more environmentally friendly, and the company expects strong demand from people who care about the environment.

Smaller brands started to use insects in their products, but now it seems that the demand is strong enough to make more products that people will be able to buy in supermarkets. A Swiss chain already sells bug-based snacks and burgers that people eat, and now it is time to offer bug-based pet food, too.

This year, people have spent more time at home with their pets. They became closer friends and people do not mind spending more money on pet food.

Difficult words: larva (the young form of an insect before it becomes an adult), bug-based (when a big part of the product is from bugs), demand (what people want).
