Do You Know The Meaning Of Fruit Stickers?
DE-CODING THE PLU CODE
All PLU codes begin with either a 3 or a 4. The IFPS has standardized the process and set aside a block of numbers specifically for the purpose of creating a common code among retailers. Regardless of where the fruit is grown and where the fruit is sold, the same fruit is always given the same number. A 4011 banana in Florida is a 4011 banana in Mexico, and it’s still a 4011 banana Ecuador. It’s simply a business system that makes it easier to identify produce.
