How to Read A Barcode to Tell If A Product Came From China, USA or Any Other Country

How to Read A Barcode to Tell If A Product Came From China, USA or Any Other Country

The Universal Product Code, more commonly known as the UPC, is your best bet at getting products from the countries you want. Lately, China has been criticized for the safety of their products and with good reason. Knowing where many of these common products are coming from can help cut down on anxiety about what you’re putting in your body.

The first three digits on the UPC barcode are the numbers to look for to identify the product’s manufacturers and country of origin. For example, if the the first three digits on the UPC barcode is between 690 and 695, it means the origin of the product is from China.



But in some cases, it can be a lot tougher to determine where it’s coming from. For example, say an Indian company imported fruit from China, then prepared it for shipping to another country, the country code would technically state the origin as China rather than India. If that’s the case, it becomes a bit tougher to figure out where it’s coming from. At this point, it’s up to the consumer to go the extra mile and do more research on the company if needed.

Being educated about where products come from is important when you’re trying to avoid potentially dangerous substances, or even when you’re just trying to be a little bit healthier.
