Barcode will trace origin of organic vegetables

Consumers who buy organic farming products will soon be able to trace the origin of the fruits and vegetables. Each organic product will be labelled with a unique barcode ID that will enable a consumer trace the details of the farmer, supplier, production date and other details.

This initiative is part of the organic farming programme launched by Green Leaf India — a group of residents and farmers — and backed by the Gurgaon horticulture department in Garethpur Bass village.

The plan is to tie up with farmers across the country and make their products available to consumers.

Green Leaf India will also launch a website and mobile phone-app using which consumers can buy organic fruits and vegetables. A central office that will track all orders online through a website, which is under process now, will also be launched, a Green Leaf member said.
