New York, NY (PRWEB) October 05, 2016
Cook Social, the all new food sharing platform that allows customers to sample dishes from local chefs and and that is also promoting food safety as it’s number one priority, is live on Kickstarter and raising funds to bring the project to life.
The sharing economy is a new trend for millennials, being utilized in everything from transportation to housing. When the thought of “food sharing” comes to mind, the immediate thought is concern for the safety of food and the individual who might be preparing the food.
Cook Social is aiming to solve this problem with what they are hoping becomes the world’s safest food sharing platform. By introducing the most advanced and rigorous standards for chefs, the platform is hoping to win over the trust of customers and become the leader in the industry over the long run.
"Other food sharing apps/websites let cooks register for free but they charge commission on every sales. There are very little Food Safety and Hygiene procedures that are followed. In some cases they ask the chef to have that particular state’s food handlers’ permit,” says founder and CEO Sarbojeet Jana, who also holds a PhD in Food Science. “Having a state’s food handlers’ permit does not guarantee safety at all. In our case (our food safety permit), we can track who got sick eating which recipe on which day and what ingredients were used. That’s why we are the best when it comes to food safety and hygiene procedures.”
The main priority of Cook Social is food hygiene and safety. Instead of taking traditional commission fees like most sharing marketplaces, Cook Social instead charges a food safety fee while the cook is able to keep 100% of all revenue made on the platform. Cook Social is planning to charge a food safety fee for $299 which is good for a 3 year permit. The Cook Social’s permit standards are so rigors that it can be used in any state or country worldwide.
By disrupting the current marketplace and introducing a new business model, the company is hoping to capture market share while earning the trust of customers which is a number one priority and concern cited from customers using similar platforms.
