Abstract
A unique traceable code can often be found on the label of high value fresh produces, such as organic, environmental friendly, and green fresh vegetables. Consumers are able to use the traceable code to search product information in a searching system. It has been found out from questionnaire survey that although high percentage of consumers think traceable code based searching system is an effective approach for getting information about food producing and product test, only limited number of consumer actually use the searching system. Also, number of consumers think is too expensive to buy traceable fresh vegetables. The results from sample test present the traceable fresh vegetable information in the searching system is very limit. The information about field history and product testing need to be added into the system, and government, media and companies need to encourage consumers to buy more traceable foods and to use the searching system more effectively.
