Mike von Massow appeared on CBC News, CTV News and in the National Post Mar. 14 talking about a new food sharing app that allows people to sell meals they’ve prepared in their kitchens at home.

A professor in U of G’s Department of Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics, von Massow said the  app model could work, but its viability will depend on getting people to use it and finding a way to monetize it.

He studies structure and performance of food value chains, economics of food demand and pricing strategy.
