Barcoding indicating country of origin

This is interesting to note. Each bar code has a unique code to show its country of origin ... as in where it is made from.

It is said that China has got 3 codes which is 690, 691 and 692. The example shown here is from Taiwan with its country code as 471.











Will check this out when I do my grocery shopping this weekend!

Hi there.
Thanks for visiting my humble blog.

Nowadays, we really have to be careful with what we buy from the stores. Have to really check the ingredients and what not. Just for our safety...
