Many products no longer show where they were made, they only give where the distributor is located.
It is important to read the bar code to track it’s origin.
ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY
NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE BOX OR PACKAGE SAYS, TURN IT OVER AND READ THE BACK—CAREFULLY!
How To Read Bar Codes
This may be useful to know when grocery shopping.
The whole world is concerned about China-made “black hearted goods”.
Can you tell what is made in Taiwan or China??
If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA.
471 is Made in Taiwan .
This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to EDUCATE ourselves.
Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products “MADE IN CHINA”, so they don’t show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the barcode – remember if the first 3 digits are:
690-692 … then it is MADE IN CHINA
00 – 09 … USA & CANADA
30 – 37… FRANCE
40 – 44… GERMANY
471 .. Taiwan
49 … JAPAN
50 … UK
BUY AUSTRALIAN by watching for “93” at the beginning of the number.
We need every boost we can get! Pass this on to everybody .
The government won’t help us, so we MUST help ourselves.
