How to read Bar Codes….interesting!
The whole world is scared of China made ‘black-hearted goods’. Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA, Philippines, Taiwan or China? For your Information … the first 3 digits of the bar code is the country code wherein the product was made.
Sample: all bar codes that start with 690. 691. 692 until 695 are all MADE IN CHINA. 471 is Made in Taiwan. If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 00-09 then it’s made or sourced in USA.

This is our human 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 don’t show from which country it is made. Some countries do not take the care in making things that others do, so knowing where a product is made can help in your decision on which one you want to choose. So you may now refer to the bar-code, remember if the first 3 digits are:

890 ……………….. MADE IN INDIA
690, 691, 692 to 695 … then it is MADE IN CHINA
00 – 13 ……………. USA and CANADA
30 – 37 ……………. FRANCE
40 – 44 ……………. GERMANY
49 ………………… JAPAN
50 ………………… UK
57 ………………… Denmark
64 ………………… Finland
76 ………………… Switzerland and Liechtenstein
471 ……………….. Taiwan
628 ……………….. Saudi-Arabia
629 ……………….. United Arab Emirates
