Hanoi will now start using QR codes to trace fruit

According to a plan issued by the Hanoi People’s Committee, starting this year the city of Hanoi plans a pilot programme on using technology to trace the origins of agricultural products. This programme is an effort to further ensure consumer health.  It will use a quick response (QR) code plastering application to provide information about fruits at shops in the city.

The plan aims to improve the efficiency of state management of food safety, strengthen  management capacities and control the quality and traceability of agricultural products in Hanoi. It also aims to reduce administrative procedures, management costs and human resources, save time and raise the effectiveness of the fight against smuggling and trade fraud.

According to a vietnamnews.vn article, along with the pilot application of QR codes to control the origin of fruits, the city will also apply a pilot authentication code against fake goods, using QR codes to trace the sources of products.
