As chair of the IFPS, I am very happy to report that the usage of PLU Codes at Retail Grocery stores is being adopted in Mexico. Mexican Retailers, Growers and Wholesalers formed an industry led initiative to implement PLU Codes labeling for fresh fruit and vegetables. This implementation is being supported by IFPS, PMA, GS1 Mexico and ANTAD. The initiative has 3 implementation milestones; 
  1. Labeling of first 26 commodities by September 30, 2014 
  2. Labeling of remaining  135 commodities by March 30, 2015
  3. Addition of DataBar Barcode on PLU Labels by December 31, 2015.

To satisfy the needs of international customers, the PLU codes list has been translated into French and Spanish.
