The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has started the project of the food supply chain by utilizing RFID (Radio Frequency Identifier).
The project is from January 20 to February 9th.
In this project, fresh foods such as vegetables and fruits are attached with REID that show the place of origin and distribution channels, and manage the freshness based on the information such as temperature and humidity obtained from them.
Consumers order products while checking their freshness with the smartphone app.
The selling price fluctuates according to the freshness, and you can check the freshness also after the product arrives at your home.
It is expected to lead to reduction of food waste from distribution to consumption.
