Accordingly, the Center has implemented QR code to identify the origin of 550 safety agricultural products and 5 manufacture and trade units in the city. With this app, just by using a smartphone with internet connection, consumers can easily access the origin of agricultural products and foodstuffs. Notably, before operating the system, the Center held quite a large number of consulting activities for manufacture units, distribution channels, regulators and consumers about how to use this app.

Nguyen Van Chi - Director of Hanoi Agriculture Trade Promotion Center said, although the system has been used for quite a short time, identifying the origin of agricultural products with QR code has brought encouraging outcomes and positive impacts for consumers in the Capital.
Reportedly, Hanoi is one of very first pioneers in the country building the transparent information system for electronic traceability in agricultural products, which helps consumers to identify the origin of necessary products in their daily meals and bring peace of mind when using these products. Recently, the Hanoi People's Committee has asked the Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Information and Communication to research a way to apply QR code for the traceability of products in an effort to cope with commercial fraud.
