Toronto Star Consults Food Economist on Possible Cargill Strike

Dr. Mike von Massow

Food economist Dr. Mike von Massow spoke to the Toronto Star about a looming strike at the Cargill facility in High River, Alta.

A strike at one of Canada’s largest meat-processing plants would almost certainly result in higher beef prices for consumers, he told the newspaper.

Von Massow is a professor in the Department of Food Agriculture and Resource Economics in the Ontario Agricultural College who studies the structure and performance of food supply chains.
