Objectives
The "RFID-enabling Shenzhen Hong Kong integrated food safety and supply chain public information platform" is a service platform based on RFID technology to provide publicly interested information related to food safety, food sources and food logistics. While leveraging the RFID as a food information carrier, our solution also integrates with different technologies, such as barcode, network and communication, to formulate an integrated system consist of an information platform and a number of applications. These applications cover various sectors on the food supply chain from Shenzhen to Hong Kong, like farm, re-processing, re-packaging, distribution, transportation and inspection, in the area of data collection, recording and exchange. This information platform aims at facilitating a highly effective and efficient informatics supply chain management, as well as enabling a seamless integration on the information requirement among various sectors in the food supply to Hong Kong, in order to synchronize the physical and information logistics. Apart from supporting the monitoring and management activities conducted by the government departments, our solution also benefits both the Shenzhen and Hong Kong enterprises in their business operation and management. More importantly, the public now realizes the high quality of service from the information age and feels comfortably relief on the food supply.
