The European Article Numbering (EAN) code is a bar code used by trade and industry according to EAN International specifications. It is known in France as GENCODE.

EAN Codes.PNG

The first three digits of the EAN indicate the country in which the company is a member of the EAN system. They do not always indicate the country of production, it may be the country where the head office of the company is situated or one of its head offices. The national regulatory body is responsible for the allocation of membership numbers for each country. The member number is the 5-digit code that follows the country identifier (the first digit is the last digit of the country code).
Determining the nationality of products: understanding the bar code

To determine the nationality of a product (and thus, in part, its CO2 impact for its transport, nothing beats the verification of the barcode.) This code that we find on almost all products (or their packaging) By manufacturers and traders that meets international standards and can thus be read around the world.
Below the bars is a series of numbers, usually 13 which also have a meaning. The first 3 digits indicate the country of origin of the product (3 for France, 4 for Germany for example, see table below). The next six, the manufacturer, the other five, the article code, the last one is a check digit.
Here are all bar codes and source codes:

From 300 to 379: the product is French

But 380: the product is Bulgarian

From 400 to 440: the product is German
