PLU Codes

To access the existing globally-used PLU codes for fresh produce, refer to the PLU codes search section of this site. 

If you are interested in applying for a new PLU code, please review the assignment criteria and application.


!! Because there is a limited, reserved range of numbers available for assignment of harmonised IFPS PLU codes, the codes used must be those listed in the database and designated as Retailer Assigned - they cannot be randomly chosen. Unassigned PLU codes are reserved explicitly for use by the IFPS Board in the assignment of new numbers.
