QR-based Food Tracking

Solution Or Cost-Prohibitive?

QR codes were created nearly three decades ago by Denso Wave, a Toyota Motor Corporation subsidiary. Toyota has long been a trailblazer in manufacturing efficiency and lean production processes.

Initially, the auto company used QR codes to track parts as they passed through each phase of the vehicle assembly process. However, QR codes have since been utilized for many other purposes.

One of the most well-known consumer-facing applications of QR codes involves their use in restaurants. Many chains and smaller restaurants began using QR codes during the Covid-19 pandemic to allow patrons to access their menus. This ease of access — and the ability to update a menu without having to incur printing costs — has made QR codes valuable.

With the help of technology, you can achieve your business goals. Blockchain technology can help you to enhance your consumers’ overall buying experience. It can create a ledger of a food item’s journey from farm to plate.

Growers, manufacturers, or packers can grant consumers access to this information via QR codes. These codes can be placed directly on food packaging and linked to product sourcing information, marketing content such as videos, and other valuable consumer resources.
