Introducing FoodLink

Mar 11, 2016 | News

Purdue Extension has developed FoodLink, an online database accessible with QR codes that will enable farmers, markets and consumers to access food information from their smartphone or computer. Useful point of sale information such as how to choose, what to look for and season of production are part of a broader set of information that includes basic cooking instructions for the stovetop, grill, microwave and oven; storage information; nutritional content and recipes. FoodLink features fruits and vegetables that are grown in Indiana and farmers and farmers’ markets have access to materials to enhance their market display and consumer education.
