Why use traceability sharing tools?

End consumers are 80% more likely to choose fresh produce that has an open traceability policy over product that does not have open traceability.  Truth is, very few consumers will ever lookup a traceability code, however, they want to know the option is available.  For your customers, instant access to quality control information can assist them in decision making processes and increases customer confidence and supply chain traceability.


How can users scan a barcode?

Its easy, they can use one of many dozens of free apps on their Apple, Android, or Blackberry phone – many users will already have these apps installed. Simply use an app like Google Goggles, Barcode Reader, Shop Savvy etc.  Once the barcode is read the information relating to the fresh produce is automatically shown to the user via a web page.  For example, try scanning the barcode below:
