"Standard Checkers" - Who are they? Are you a savvy shopper?

"Standard Checkers" - Who are they? They are savvy consumers who prioritize health benefits. This article will guide you to become a true "Checker", where you take responsibility for the foods and beverages you put into your body. At VN Check, we provide consumers with powerful tools for source tracking and counterfeit prevention, all within one application


Checker - The Food Inspector" may seem like a familiar term that everyone understands, but not everyone takes responsibility for inspecting /ɪnˈspekt/ food before consuming it. We often become complacent  /kəmˈpleɪ.sənt/ ( trái nghĩa với vigilant cảnh giác) because we trust well-known brands. Let's say you accidentally purchase a product of unknown origin or a counterfeit product from a reputable brand. What would you do?


The first thing you should definitely do is to unwrap the product. Sometimes, even you yourself may not know whether it's genuine or fake, right? Millions of consumers are still falling into that trap, consuming contaminated, expired, or untraceable food every day. Below are some figures to prove this fact:


"According to GLOBOCAN, in Vietnam, the incidence rate has increased by 9 ranks (ranked 90th out of 185 countries), and the cancer mortality /mɔːrˈtæl.ə.t̬i/ rate has increased by 6 ranks (ranked 50th out of 185 countries) compared to the data recorded in 2018. It is estimated that there are 182,563 new cases and 122,690 deaths from cancer. For every 100,000 people, there are 159 new cancer diagnoses and 106 cancer-related deaths."

So, with a population of about 100 million people, Vietnam sees approximately 106,000 deaths from cancer each year. This is an alarming figure. If we do not understand cancer well enough, we will explain more about this dreaded disease. We would like to present some of the causes of cancer as follows:

  • Chemical carcinogens: 90% of lung cancer cases are caused by smoking. Overall, tobacco accounts for about 30% of mainly lung cancer cases and some cases of cancers of the nasal cavity, pancreas, and urinary tract
  • Nutritional factors: Nutrition plays a role in about 35% of the causes of cancer. Many types of cancer are related to nutrition, such as esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer, colorectal cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, breast cancer, and endocrine-related cancers.
  • Occupational factors: When working in occupational environments, humans are exposed to both ionizing radiation and viruses, but the most important carcinogens in professions are the chemicals used. It is estimated that this group of causes accounts for about 2 to 8% of cancers depending on each industrial area

Therefore, food plays a crucial role. Every day, we consume contaminated or untraceable food, which is a leading cause of cancer. Faced with the urgent issue of rising cancer rates in Vietnam, we have researched and developed VN Check - the first-ever 4.0 technology platform for origin tracing and anti-counterfeiting in Vietnam. You can trust our platform to ensure the safety of products before use. By using our app, you become a "Standard Checker" in verifying counterfeit goods and tracing their origins.

To use it, all you need to do is download the app from Google Play and the App Store by tapping a few times on your phone screen and downloading the VN Check app. To become a "Standard Checker," you need to register and verify your identity before checking any product with VN Check's QR code. To ensure consumer rights at various levels, we categorize origin tracing into three levels as follows:

  • Level 1: Artificial Intelligence system to prevent data counterfeiting, abnormal access, counterfeit information about businesses, manufacturers, and product expiration dates.
  • Level 2: Trace the origin of product distribution channels. We have the ability to encrypt and tightly control data in real time, making it easy for us to detect data counterfeiting.
  • Level 3: Trace the origin of the product manufacturing process in real time. All production data will be digitized according to the correct procedures and quality standards to ensure that the manufacturing process meets the requirements.

You are someone who cares about your own health, your family's, and the community's - Become a "Standard Checker" now! With each verified account, if you detect counterfeit goods, we will send you unexpected gifts. See you again at the launch event of VN Check scheduled to be held on December 25, 2023, in Hanoi.
