BE CAREFUL WHAT ARE YOU BUYING: DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE STICKERS ON THE FRUITS MEAN?

When going to the store, most of us decide to buy some fresh fruit. Their beautiful appearance and smell tempt us so much that we put them in the cart without even thinking twice. On most of them you can find small stickers which we don’t think of as important, but we should!

They are made from edible paper and are found not only on exotic fruits such as bananas or oranges, but also on our domestic apples or pears. Usually they contain the name of the producer of importer, country of origin, or a PLU bar code. Have you ever wondered what those numbers stand for? If you don’t already know, you’ll find an explanation – check next page.
