Not just the data: Amway, BYHEALTH, Danone on bringing product traceability to life for consumers

Food and nutrition companies, as well as government agencies, are increasingly invested in product traceability. In this series of VitamINSIGHTS, we shine the spotlight on supplement and infant formula brands that have made strides in this area, including Amway, Danone, and BYHEALTH.

Amway for example, has launched its Nutrilite Traceability program four years ago, tapping on digital technologies such as web-based augmented reality and livestreaming to “bring product traceability to life” ​for consumers.

Danone, on the other hand, has developed a dual-QR code packaging for its infant formulas sold in countries such as China, while BYHEALTH is operating a transparency factory in Zhuhai for consumers to take a look at the key production process.
