ABOUT BAR CODES AND PRODUCTS MADE IN CHINA


by @doi on Tue 28 Oct 2008 - 13:12Dear friends,

A few years ago, foreign brands that used to be manufactured in the
Philippines shifted their factories to other countries who paid their
workers much lower wages. A movement was launched by patriotic
activists to "buy Filipino - save Filipino jobs". So the manufacturers
eliminated all print stating "Made in (the country of origin)" and
substituted it with words such as "Manila Office: xxx St., xxx
District." An attempt was made to try to identify through the bar
codes which products were not manufactured in the Philippines, but it
turned out the bar codes "indicate the country that issued the code,
NOT THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN OF THE PRODUCT" (See the following website,
and scroll about three or four times down its page to see the quotation
cited) :

Similarly,
it would be difficult to pinpoint the actual country of origin of the
product in trying to avoid products from any country.

Doesn't it make you wish the system could be changed?
