'729' Barcode of Israel?
identifying Israeli products by their barcode have been circulated
over the internet, one example is shown below:
Most of the
products have a barcode to identify them. Each barcode contains
a lot of information such as the factory and also the country where
it is produced.
system is not necessarly waterproof but will certainly allow you
to screen a lot of products coming from Israël.
You can retrieve
the list of these countries and the according numbers on the internet.
383 EAN Slovenija
471 EAN Taiwan
these one have NOTHING to do with Israël.
A barcode starting
with "729" indicates that this product is produced in
Bar Code Association - EAN Israel
Don't buy them
if you want to protest against the current agression!!
are misleading, a barcode never lies if it carries that 729 !!!
added more targets to the barcode boycott list:
ones start with 00 till 13.
But upon investigating
the barcodes of know Israeli goods people found the barcodes weren't
bar code story is not so simple. I purchased several food items
from Israel to investigate which could be from the occupied territories.
The Achdut Tahini from Industrial Zone Barkan (Occupied Territories)
starts out: 7 219.... Pri-Vayerek Olives from Industrial Zone Har
Tov starts: 7 922... (Barbet (Jam) imported from Israel by Supreme
Foods of Concord Ont.: 6 507...)
I notice that
foods from Sweden start out with either a 7 or an 8, so there is
no consistant labeling for some countries. As a matter of fact,
I notice that the first number is not consistantly the same on goods
from any particular country; foods from Canada usually start with
a 6, but not always.
There must be
a better way to tell...
investigated what EAN (the barcode number) actually mean. From the
EAN international FAQ: http://www.ean-int.org/faqadc.html
Does the EAN
number indicate the country of origin of a product?
No, the numbering
of a product with EAN numbers does not imply any significance. An
EAN number simply starts with the prefix of the member organisation
that has allocated a bank of numbers to a company. This does not
mean that the product was manufactured in a specific country or
by a specific manufacturer.
So where does
this leave us?
you read all the labels and not rely on the barcode as it clearly
does not indicate the country of origin although it might be accurate
on many occasions.
People of good conscience have chosen to boycott israeli products and companies supporting the zionist entity. Their ethical purchasing decision however is frustrated by the lack of accurate information as to which companies to boycott.
Below please find a comprehensive list of Israeli Products and companies. We are 1.6 billion Muslims we need to hit them where it hurts - their pockets Insha'Allah kheer.It is the least we can do after dua'.
