Codes Reserved for Assignment

Because there is a limited, reserved range of numbers available for assignment of harmonized IFPS PLU codes, when a standard code does not exist, 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. 

PLU Codes & Organic Items

PLU codes in this database are for conventionally grown fresh produce. To identify an organic item, the prefix of '9' is inserted in front of the 4-digit conventional PLU code.

Size Breaks/Variety Splits within Existing PLU Codes

When a PLU Code application is approved for a specific variety or size when a PLU Code already exists with no specific variety or size named, the nomenclature for the existing PLU Code (the variety or size) will be changed to “Other”.

When applicant submits application requesting new size, existing PLU code becomes ‘All other sizes’. Same with variety; e.g. red seedless grapes.
