the U.P.C. Database?
NEW for 2017 -
The U.P.C. Data Market
At the outset,
YES I have the U.P.C. Database. In fact, I have many U.P.C. Databases.
you send me an E-Mail requesting database files, YOU need to know
what to ask for.
Before I tell you,
let's look at the structure of a U.P.C.:
The first six digits
above - 614141 (in this example) - are the Company Prefix assigned by GS1
US (formerly the Uniform Code Council).
The next five digits
- 00027 - are the Company's internal Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) or product
The final digit
- 2 - is a computer generated check digit.
While Company information
is available from GS1 US, product information (the SKU and corresponding
U.P.C.) is not.
For those of you still
reading, I would assume that you are seeking MORE than just Company
information. To that end, what you are really seeking is an
Electronic Product Catalog

CATEGORIES of items - such as Food, Health & Beauty, General Merchandise, Spirits (Beer, Wine, Liquor), etc.

- (for Fritos Corn Chips) Corn, Corn Oil, Salt, etc.

images are also available.

Catalog - Final Thought:
Today you can find U.P.C. Data most everywhere, ranging from simple "user supported"
Web Sites and Sponsored Data Libraries - at No Charge - to fully attributed Item
Databases designed for truly Commercial use with easily "justifiable" Prices.
My Data falls in the latter category.
