Apple QR Code

Apples originating from the Aomori Prefecture in Japan will each have an individual QR Code from next year, even if they are harvested from the same tree (image below). Aomori apples are famous for their flavor and size and 90% of them are exported. The QR Code resolves to a mobile site where the consumer can view information on the farmer, soil, pesticides used etc., in Japanese, Chinese and English. The QR Code system will allow the prefectural government and apple growers to follow the distribution routes of the exported apples.
