Over the past year, Canada Beef has been building the capacity to enable Canadian consumers to scan existing bar codes on beef packages with a smartphone using the Canadian Beef Information Gateway (Gateway). The Gateway currently supports barcodes from more than 30 retailers who represent most of the beef sold in Canadian grocery stores. Scanning barcodes will provide dedicated information about a specific product, including recipes, videos, storage, and preparation tips, as well as nutrition information.
