Table top farming of edible insects
Katharina grew up raising chickens, cows and horses on the border of Austria and Hungary. Noticing the dramatic state of our food system while living in Hong Kong, she is now determined to ‘design nature for humans’ and her first product that she is developing with her company Livin Farms is the world’s first tabletop device for edible insects. Katharina is a Fulbright alumna and an award winning industrial designer.
In this podcast: Think bugs are disgusting to eat? Think again! Did you know that mealworms are edible AND one of the best sources of protein out there? It sounds crazy, but when you listen to this podcast with Katharina Unger from Livin Farms, you might just be converted. Listen today as award-winning industrial designer Katharina shares her latest project: the world’s first tabletop device for edible insects.
