NANJING -- East China's Jiangsu province launched Tuesday a traceability platform for agricultural products, according to the provincial department of agriculture and rural affairs.
Scanning QR codes on the products with their mobile phones, customers can find out information about the agricultural products, including the production process and the producers. More than 3,800 producers of agricultural products in the province have registered with the platform.
"The platform can not only help customers trace the products but press the producers for law-abiding production," said Zhu Xinhua, deputy head of the provincial department of agriculture and rural affairs.
"More than 80 percent of the major producers of agricultural products in the province are expected to be included in the platform within a year," Zhu added.
