The future of a steak – level 1

04-07-2024 15:00

Company Micro Harvest is helping with the growing need for more protein.

They use tiny living things in a closed space, called a Bioreactor. This is a quick way to make protein. Other ways usually take a long time. Micro Harvest finishes the process in just one day. The protein which they make has a good taste.

The protein can go into different foods, even for pets. Bakers wants to start small, like in a local store or restaurant, and then grow. There are some rules to follow, but the company hopes that it will be possible to make food for people, too.

Difficult words: protein (a substance which is meat, cheese, eggs, and so on), process (several steps which have a particular result), local (from an area which you are talking about).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are some potential challenges that Micro Harvest may face in expanding their protein production to include food for people?
