Avoid the 8 -Price Look-Up Codes

Fifth (Leading) Digit Qualifier
The IFPS shall be responsible for deciding the assignment and definition of qualifying prefix digits
for international recognition. At present, only three digits have been allocated:

0-----Applies to all non-qualified produce and is generally presented without the leading "zero" digit.
8-----Genetically modified

Q How is organically grown produce coded on a PLU label?
A The number 9 is added to the front of the regular four digit PLU code. (e.g. an organically grown
banana would be 94011.)

Q How is genetically engineered produce coded on a PLU label?
A The number 8 is added in front of the regular four digit PLU code. (e.g. a genetically engineered
vine ripe tomato would be 84805.)

Q How do I obtain a list of PLUs?
A A complete list of Global PLUs is available on the Web at www.plucodes.com. More information
is available from your Country Organization. (this sight is for grocers.)
