EIP Practice Abstract Format:
Short summary for practitioners in English on the (final or expected) outcomes (1000-1500 characters, word count – no spaces).This summary should be as interesting as possible for farmers/end-users, using a direct and easy understandable language and pointing out entrepreneurial elements which are particularly relevant for practitioners. Research oriented aspects which do not help the understanding of the practice itself should be avoided.
Short description of the ‘Good Practice’:
The process is quite simple, Farmers can sign up in the platform and upload all their products, and NATURCODE platform is generating a simple and attractive Smart Label using QR technology that you can put on your physical label of your products. Then, Consumers can scan the QR code when they are shoppping and they are accessing to the description and characteristics of the products in a live mode. In addition, one key aspect is that Consumer can rate your products so you can have their opinnion directly in the platform to continuosly improve the production of them. and other Consumers can see the rates facilitating the purchasing decision.
|Main results/outcomes of the activity (expected or final): Through transaprency and informed product charasteristics and description provided with the Smart Label (QR), the SFSC are gainning a better reputation and consolidating as a primarly choice for customers. Farmers and Consumers are mutually beneficiating because the information is transparent, reliable and ethical. It is generating a framework of trust between Farmers and Producers. On one hand, Farmers and Producers are receiving feedback from consumers, and on the other hand, Consumers can get access to the feedback of other consumers, and they are also contributing with their opinions to improve the quality of the products.|

NATURCODE es un ejemplo de cómo potenciar la digitalización de las cadenas de valor de los agricultores y productores a través del etiquetado de productos (QR). Está considerada como la primera plataforma española con vocación europea para la identificación digital de productos agroalimentarios que conecta directamente a los pequeños productores y distribuidores, así como a los consumidores, a través de información basada en las 6S Alimentarias (Segura, Salobres, Sostenible, Satisfactoria, Social y Solidaria). Cuenta con más de 1.100 agricultores y más de 3.000 productos en su catálogo.
