What do food waste, a smartphone app, and discounted meals have in common? That's the formulae for a great new start-up from Melbourne. Mark sat down with Jane Kou, founder of Bring Me Home, a mission focused tech start-up that's set it sights on one of the biggest causes of greenhouse gas emissions, and one we can all easily make a dent in, food waste.
You'll hear the origin story of the company, the passion Jane has for the mission, and the grand plans they have for the future. Also, Mark tries out the app, and gets a sandwich. What kind of sandwich? Was it good? You'll have to listen to find out!
Try out the app, save money, and save food waste.
