Farmers in Quang Ninh apply QR Codes to OCOP (One Commune One Product) products
Now manufacturers or farmers that want to use QR Codes on their products have to pay for them.
Vu Thanh Long, Director of Quang Ninh provincial Department of Building new countryside addressed that Quang Ninh Province experimented with VNPT Check QR Codes on 233 OCOP products, making up 80% of the total OCOP products of Quang Ninh.
The use of VNPT Check QR Codes, the first 1000 of which were free, on OCOP products of Quang Ninh was started experimentally at the end of August 2017. And all those products with the codes had been sold out. Until now, manufacturers or farmers that want to use QR Codes on their products have to pay for them.
Through QR Codes, manufacturers and farmers can provide consumers with information about their products such as origin, features, selling price, producers, etc. Furthermore, VNPT also offers a tool for product distribution management by location.
All consumers have to do is to download VNPT Check app on their smartphone in order to scan the codes and examine the quality of the products before buying. Thus, customers can avoid acquisition of counterfeit products or receive recommendations on expired products. In addition, customers also get the fastest access to promotion policies of producers.
The use of QR Code not only helps standardize and improve the competitiveness of Quang Ninh OCOP products but also makes name for themselves in the market.
Director of Department for Building new countryside, Vu Thanh Long stated that Quang Ninh Province was considering supporting VNPT Check QR Codes (about 18,000 codes) for 50 main OCOP products of the province in 2018.
