Commodity barcodes are currently the most widely used EAN13 commodity barcodes (one-dimensional barcodes) at home and abroad. Almost every commodity of prepackaged food has such commodity barcodes. It is also extremely common in production, operation and daily life. It is mainly used for commercial settlement. Wait. In this year’s National People’s Congress, some representatives have focused their attention on this seemingly “small” commodity barcode.
Today, a reporter from “International Finance News” received a proposal from Yonghui from Hua Xiaoli, deputy to the National People’s Congress and director of the Yonghui Party Committee Office. She said that with the increasing enrichment of people’s material life and the people’s healthy needs for food safety, some safety issues have attracted more and more attention, which requires all responsible subjects to assume corresponding responsibilities and jointly defend “the tip of the tongue”, she said. Safety”. The information such as the producer name, origin, contact information, ingredients, batch number, production date, and shelf life of traceable food has become a new demand of the people in the new era. With the release and implementation of the national standard “Commodity QR Code” (GB/T 33993-2017), the upgrading of commodity barcodes to commodity QR codes has become a new expectation for epidemic prevention requirements, supervision and demand-side food safety.
Hua Xiaoli pointed out that the product QR code is convenient for producers to ensure the safety of products, for sellers to implement the main responsibility for food safety, for consumers to identify food safety by themselves, for market supervision departments to supervise food enterprises, and The use of commodity QR codes can effectively prevent and reduce food waste.
In Hua Xiaoli’s view, manufacturers can trace back to each production link of the product through the QR code, and even track the delivery date, delivery quantity, distributor name and address of each batch of products. Once a quality problem occurs, it can be quickly recalled within the scope of traceability, which provides a reliable scientific means for food safety assurance, and realizes the full chain traceability from the production end to the consumer end of the circulation link. At the same time, using the QR code to store detailed information such as product origin, manufacturer, quality inspection report, and anti-counterfeiting logo can effectively prevent counterfeit and shoddy products and protect the interests of legitimate manufacturers.
In addition, she also pointed out that the current commodity barcodes on prepackaged foods only display price information during settlement, and do not include important food safety information such as production batches, production dates, and shelf life. Since the management of the shelf life of goods at various sales terminals still relies on manual tallying and manual screening and screening, it is inevitable that there are omissions, and expired food may be consumed by consumers after being sold. “It is hoped that the QR code of prepackaged food products can automatically pop up the prompt ‘this product has exceeded the shelf life’ during the settlement of expired food or the scan code function cannot be implemented, so that expired food can be effectively intercepted and consumers can be guaranteed food safety. ”
Hua Xiaoli also said that the product QR code can store or associate relevant information such as food ingredients, production processes, qualification certificates, warehousing and logistics, and sales links, in line with the regulatory requirements of law enforcement authorities on producers and operators. The supervisory department can randomly supervise the traceability information of each food of the producer and trader, scan the QR code of the product through the mobile law enforcement terminal, and quickly query the production batch, production date, shelf life, qualification certificate and other data information of the produced and traded food, which is helpful for Improve the food safety supervision system in the production and circulation links to ensure timely detection and traceability of sources, thereby reducing the harm of food quality problems and effectively reducing the occurrence of food safety incidents.
Finally, Hua Xiaoli suggested that the national level gradually promote the delivery of prepackaged food products with QR codes, so that technology can empower food supervision and improve food production and operation safety management.
