In addition to giving electronic stamps, the department also organizes training on VNPT check service, solutions to verify the origin of goods for businesses, cooperatives and production facilities to understand and apply them to production practices.

Director of the Department of Crop Production, Plant Protection and Agricultural Product Quality Management - Nguyen Van Cuong informed that the province focused on supporting agricultural, forestry and aquatic production and business establishments in the areas for setting up and applying advanced quality management programs. In particular, the traceability of some products is implementated through QR stamps. This is considered a positive signal contributing to improving the efficiency of the quality management of agricultural products of the province. Thereby, it helps consumers capture information about the product, the manufacturing process, preliminary processing, processing and trading, creating consumer confidence. Once the manufacturer uses the QR stamp, it will provide sufficient information and records of the production process of the product, serving the management of state agencies./.
