Code will allow customers to access details about local growers who supply Woolworths

Woolworths is set to roll out a new quick response (QR) code from 1 July which will help its customers get to know local fruit and vegetable growers.

Meet the Grower packaging includes the farmers’ photo, URL, length of time supplying Woolworths and a QR code that ,when scanned, will allow customers to access more detail about the grower.

The first product to launch the program will be apples from Victorian fruit supplier Montague Fresh. The code will appear on the packaging of 57 products over the next two months and close to 100 products by Christmas 2013.
