Chapter 7: “Doc, what is the difference between “Product of”and “Made in?”

Sometimes when deciding to buy a product you may have come across the labels ‘Product of’ and ‘Made in’.

When ‘Product of’ is displayed on the food label, it means that all the ingredients used in the product and all the manufacturing process originated from the country the product claims to be a product of. Make sure this is the case when reading food labels.

When ‘Made in’ is displayed, it means the ingredients were imported from elsewhere and processed in the country the product claims to be made in. Further, 50% of the manufacturing process must have occurred in that country.
