The shrimp that end up on your plate may have been fed with food grown in your background.

This interview originally aired on "In the Moment" on SDPB Radio.

The South Dakota start-up company Prairie AquaTech is using innovative research to make your shrimp dish more sustainable and even a little cheaper.

Mark Luecke is the CEO of Prairie AquaTech, which will soon change its name to Houdek. He joins Lori Walsh to talk about what plant-based meal can do for animals, people and the planet.

Meet the company that makes the food behind your food.
