Scan QR to get de­tails of meat prod­ucts

The UB Post - - Business & Economics -

Agri­cul­tural au­thor­i­ties have launched an an­droid ap­pli­ca­tion that al­lows cus­tomers to scan QR codes on meat prod­ucts and get ac­cess to all rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion.

Around 1,100 pri­vate vet clin­ics af­fil­i­ated to the Gen­eral Vet­eri­nary Of­fice are op­er­at­ing in 332 soums across Mon­go­lia. These clin­ics have started pro­vid­ing cer­tifi­cate of ori­gin for meat prod­ucts in the form of QR codes.

The Min­istry of Food, Agri­cul­ture and Light In­dus­try is car­ry­ing out a project to cre­ate a sys­tem fo­cused on the trace­abil­ity of an­i­mal prod­ucts and raw ma­te­ri­als. Within the scope of this project, herders have started sell­ing their meat to other soums and prov­inces through the Agri­cul­tural Com­mod­ity Ex­change and Nomin Hyper­mar­ket. Nomin Hyper­mar­ket re­ported that it checks whether an­i­mals were in­spected and didn’t con­tain any dis­ease be­fore be­ing slaugh­tered to en­sure that it de­liv­ers safe and stan­dard prod­ucts to cus­tomers.

The new ap­pli­ca­tion fa­cil­i­tates this process, ac­cord­ing to rel­e­vant of­fi­cials.

Apart from Nomin Hyper­mar­ket, Shoko­lad­nitsa chain restau­rant is procur­ing meat prod­ucts with QR codes.
