Want to Know What Those Mystery Produce Codes Mean?

A good article on "The Daily Table" that explains what the PLU codes on your produce mean.

In short:

"- A four-digit number means it’s conventionally grown. (Or possibly a five digit number if the first one is a 0.)
- A five-digit number beginning with 8 means it’s genetically modified.
- A five-digit number beginning with 9 means it’s organic."

  1. Thanks for the great info. I'm glad that they have to label what country the produce comes from too!
