If the first 3 digits of the bar-code are 690, 691 or 692 the product is made in China. 471 is made in Taiwan.
We have a right to know where the items we buy are made but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to educate ourselves.
Nowadays, Chinese business men know that consumers do not always prefer products “Made in China”… So, they dont always show from which country an item is made.
However, you may now refer to the bar-code – remember the first few digits…
- 690 to 692… Made in China
- 00 to 09… Made In USA & Canada
- 30 to 37… Made in France
- 40 to 44… Made in Germany
- 471… Made in Taiwan
- 49… Made in Japan
- 50… Made in United Kingdom
Buy British if you can by checking for the number 50 at the beginning of the bar-code number
