Produce Codes on your fruits & vegies tell you a lot!

This is great information! Look at the PRODUCE CODES when you're purchasing your fruits and vegetables. They tell you a lot more than you think!



Conventional produce gets a four-digit number. This means the produce was sprayed with chemical fertilizers, weedkillers, herbicides or fungicides.

Organic produce gets a five-digit number that starts with 9. These numbers ensure that the produce was not treated with chemicals.

Genetically modified produce have a five-digit code that starts with the No. 8. This is produce that where man has intervened by manipulating the genes to produce a larger or brighter colored food. This produce may have been chemically treated.



Make it a great day!
