An electronic traceability system for Vietnam’s farmers and consumers 

How it works is farmers and the processors, the middle men who buy from producers, log information such as product origins and how it was processed into TraceVerified’s software. The data, which is compiled into TraceVerified’s first product “TraceReport,” is accessible via QR codes on product packaging — which consumers scan using a mobile app.
