All of their product data will be entered into METRO’s own database which then be consolidated online and by way of a unique product identification, it is then possible to obtain detailed information about individual products. With this new tractability system, HoReCa customers can retrieve the main product data such as origin and time of processing for all products delivered to them. Moreover, the products delivered from METRO’s will consist of food labeling where stakeholders can easily see the detailed information about the products they receive.

Production Handling and Good Agricultural Practices
Crop Production Handling and Good Agricultural Practices training aim to boost the productivity and profitability of farmers through sustainable farming and furthermore, aiming to improving more access to quality agricultural inputs, and help farmers develop the requisite skills for sustainable farming through training, knowledge sharing and practical field visit sessions. These training will equip local farmers with necessary awareness, knowledge and skills in areas such as production, harvesting, processing and packaging. Unlocking the potential in agricultural players to better serve end customers and promote food safety and sourcing local produce would promote Myanmar’s agricultural sector and foster export opportunities through the firm’s international sourcing channels.
