The AUG/Living Goods Program is a conceptual mobile phone app that scans fresh food barcodes and instantly delivers information on the producer, how far the food has come, if the product is in season, historical pricing, detailed consumer ratings and the user’s purchasing history.

Knowing the origin of produce, meats and dairy helps locavores, or those who want to be locavores, to know how much time food spends in transit and what type of impact food production and transit may be having on the planet. The knowledge may help consumers make more informed, green buying decisions.
