    • Narrator: It’s fresh orange juice thousands of miles from the grove. It ensures that the first hand to touch that morning egg is yours. It slices bacon, cooks toast and inserts that little maple nugget inside a McGriddle sandwich. And it’s a mega-business worth tens of billions of dollars. Now: Breakfast Tech, on Modern Marvels.
