Scan QR to get details of meat products
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.
