VeriAg

Safe food always

We are a non profit, independent quality assurance and certification service for organic food produce and farm inputs in Uganda.

Use Case

A farming family containing two parents and two children always buy farming inputs like manure, food for their cows and goats and pesticides for their maize and beans, so to avoid buying counterfeit or expired farm inputs, their eldest son Thomas checks on the VeriAg app for the certified stores and brands that we approved to avoid instances of buying expired or counterfeit products that may kill their crops or livestock. Genuine manufacturers are also helped because this helps to clear the industry of the people who duplicate their products or traders who sell their products which may sometimes be expired. To the final consumers this helps them to consume the right products that will not result into health complications in the future like cancer and others.

Potential

VeriAg is one of the kind that helps the farmers, farming input manufacturers and the general public from to go through the cycle of counterfeit or expired farming inputs thus preventing their consequences. Since we are an independent organization, there can never include instances of bribery unlike in other government institutions in Uganda. We also carryout transparent shaming campaigns against the culprits of counterfeit producers and stores that sell expired products and report them to the authorities, this idea was welcomed by most of the manufacturers, farmers and consumers so they promised to support and partner with us all the way.

Business Case

We are a non profit quality assurance and certification service for organic food produce and farming inputs in Uganda. Most of the organic food producers and farm input manufacturers promised to partner with us in all our campaign, the majority of the farmers and the general public committed to volunteer any necessary information and evidence that we may need to carryout all our operations. Our VeriAg app will be available on google play for free so that everyone can access it, for societies free from expired organic foods and fake farm inputs.

Objectives:

  1. To ensure that people do not consume countterfeit foods that may result into health consequences.
  2. To ensure a transparent food production system.
  3. To develop a mentality in our people that selling expired and making counterfeit products is not a good thing.
