Be Careful What Are You Buying: Do You Know What The Stickers on The Fruits Mean?

We’ve all noticed the stickers on the fruits that we buy in the supermarket. But, have you ever wondered what they mean?

  1. A 4 digit code starting with the numbers 3 or 4 means that the product was cultivated in the second half of the 20th century on a factory farm, and probably used artificial fertilizers.
  2. A 5 digit code starting with the number 9 means that the product was grown in a traditional way, has been cultivated for thousands of years, and is considered organic or without pesticides and fertilizers.
  3. A product with a 5 digit code starting with the number 8 means that the product is genetically modified or commonly known as GMO.

We hope that you will pay more attention to what you buy and consume after reading this.
