If consumers pick expired food, at the time of settlement, the Checkout Counter computer screen will automatically pop up "this product has exceeded the shelf life" prompts, expired food simply can not get through the checkout of the cash register. These supermarkets are one of the first supermarkets in the country to have been established through the “reliable meat demonstration supermarket”.
“We have reformed the supermarket's smart Checkout Counter system and updated the scan code gun to adapt to the 'two-dimensional code cash register traceability system' to realize the automatic identification of expired foods.” Wang Zengqing, president of Beijing Supermarket Chain Co., Ltd. introduced.
