Product Bar Coding

Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA, Philippines, Taiwan or China? For your Information …the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code wherein the product was made.

Sample: all barcodes that start with 690 through 695 are all MADE IN CHINA.

Bar Code 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 RESCUE ourselves.

Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products ‘made in China’, so they often don’t show from which country it is made.

However, you may refer to the barcode; remember if the first 3 digits are 690 – 695 then it is Made in China .
