Parents can trace journey of baby milk product
Consumers now have their first touch point with Fonterra’s traceability in New Zealand through QR codes on Fonterra’s paediatric range, Anmum. The QR codes are part of a programme to track and trace ingredients and products electronically throughout Fonterra, from the raw milk source on farm right through to retailers who sell the product to consumers.
Unique for every Anmum can, the QR code connects consumers via a mobile phone app to a webpage with information which verifies the authenticity of the product and its batch number. Consumers can also scan the can at any stage after they have bought it and get up to date status information about their product.
Group Marketing Manager Anmum, Teresa Smyth says: “As a mum of twins myself, knowing exactly where the product comes from gives me confidence in buying it and feeding it to my children.
“By scanning the QR code to trace the product’s journey, consumers can be reassured about the quality and safety of our products – and this is fundamental to being the most trusted source of dairy nutrition.”
Fonterra General Manager Trust in Source, Tim Kirk said Fonterra is on track to have total electronic traceability to world-class standards by 2020 – and the first cans of the traceable paediatric range Anmum hitting the shelves in New Zealand supermarkets is the first milestone.
