For applying a new PLU-code you have to follow the applicatrion procedure.
Hereby you have to consier the following criteria:
Product must be a fresh fruit or vegetable, loose or bunched, sold by weight or by the unit, in an unprocessed form and sold at retail stores.
Note: Peeled or pre-cut fruits and vegetables are considered as processed product, and, as such, will
not be assigned a PLU code for use in the fresh fruit & vegetable department.
The product variety must be widely recognized – for example, Granny Smith apple is distinct from another variety of apple, such as Golden Delicious. Separate codes are assigned to varieties because they are potentially sold at different prices.
Note: If the item you are requesting a new standard code for is similar to an item that is currently assigned a code (i.e. requesting new code for Round Eggplant and Eggplant is currently assigned a code), please attach an explanation of why your item is unique from the item that already has been assigned a code.
