Eat you out of house and home. No families themselves to feed.


Stickers on produce contain 4-5 digit number, known as a Price Look-Up (PLU) code, for stores to identify produce and distinguish between conventionally-grown, GMO, and organic produce.

PLU codes have been used by supermarkets since 1990 to make check-out and inventory control easier, faster, and more accurate.

• A four-digit code beginning with a 3 or a 4 means the produce is conventionally grown.

• A five-digit number that starts with a 9 means the item is organic.

• A five-digit code that starts with an 8 means the item is genetically modified.
