Nominated as one of the Greener Gadgets Design Competition finalists, the AUG/Living Goods barcode app can help you find out how far your food has traveled. Now you can learn the origin of your produce, meat, and dairy products–plus product descriptions and producer profiles–from a simple app on your mobile phone.
What are the benefits?
For the consumer
An understanding about where your food comes from, who produced it, and a record of your buying history.
For the farmer
Increased awareness about your customers; the potential for increased sales; opportunities for developing customer relationships.
For the grocer:
An opportunity to be the liaison for local farmers and locavores, which, in turn, could mean faster turnover of goods.
