We are sure that you have noticed the stickers on the fruits that you are buying in the supermarket? Have you ever wondered what do they mean?
1. If it is a 4 digit code that starts with the numbers 3 or 4, it means that the product was cultivated in the second half of the 20th century on a factory farm, and probably used artificial fertilizers.
2. If the product has 5 digit code that starts with the number 9, it means that the product was grown in a traditional way, as it has been cultivated for thousands of years, which is commonly known today as organic or without pesticides and fertilizers.
3. If the product has a 5 digit code that starts with number 8, it means that the product is genetically modified or commonly known as GMO.

i was wondering if this also applies in Australia? Thanks
This applies nowhere in the world. Spending 1 minute googling you easily end up with this:
“The 4-digit PLU codes for produce are assigned randomly within a series of numbers within the 3000 and 4000 series. There is no intelligence built into the 4-digit code. For example, no one number within the 4-digit number represents anything in particular. The 4-digit codes are for conventionally grown produce.”
