Buy British- UK Specific Barcodes

Got this from another site I frequent and am passing it on.

You might want to take this with you when shopping.

It's worth printing this and cutting it out to have in your wallet or purse.
Let's stop the out sourcing of our jobs.Help the British farmers and pass this on


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!

With all the food and pet products now coming from China , it is best to make sure you read label at the grocery store and especially Walmart /Asda when buying food products.

Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located.
It is important to read the bar code to track its origin. How to read Bar Codes .... interesting!
This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.
GREAT WAY TO "BUY BRITISH " AND NOT FROM CHINA!!



The whole world is concerned about China-made "black hearted goods".
Can you differentiate which one 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 RESCUE ourselves.

Now adays,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 'BRITISH' by watching for "50" at the beginning of the number.
We need every boost we can get! Pass this on to everybody on your E-Mail Contact List!!

The first two or three digits of an EAN-13 barcode identify the country in which the manufacturer's identification code was assigned. They do not necessarily indicate the country in which the goods were manufactured. Many countries have EAN coding authorities which regulate the use of retail barcodes. For names, addresses, and telephone numbers, click here to view our list of Standards Organizations. In the United States the UPC-A and UPC-E symbologies are used for marking retail products; the administering authority is the Uniform Code Council in Dayton, Ohio (tel. 937-435-3870).

Thanks for the info. I know it's not within everyone's means - but farmer's markets are a much better expression of economic patriotism. Even if we just bought a proportion of goods from these each 'shop' it'll be helping. If more of us used them, it would encourage more to set up and begin to get prices down. i get my eggs from a colleague at work with his own hens. They're from just up the road and about 10p more than the supermarket.
