Leading Technology Company – Virtual City has developed a mobile based technology to help in tracking of produce from the farm – in each of the processing stages – till they reach the shelves in European supermarkets.
The technology will help Kenyan companies be able to adhere to the stringent ‘rules of origin’ requirements – a system of due diligence used by EU authorities to ascertain the origin of exports destined for the EU market.
Virtual City Managing Director, Mr. John Waibochi said there were significant benefits for the companies as their produce could be easily traced back in the supply chain – saving costs and ensuring efficiency.
