Photos: 15 apps that are changing the food industry


More than 400 companies and 3,000 farms around the world use HarvestMark, a platform to trace where food comes from. You can pick a food and trace where, how, and when it was grown. If the food in the participating supermarket chain has the HarvestMark logo, just scan it to find out the story of that particular item. It can be found on Driscoll’s berries, chicken from Petaluma Poultry, Kroger brands, and many others.
