[access-uk] Re: identifying foods

So just one database would be necessary for many products. But when it
comes to Asda's own pizza or Lidl's own tomato puree, I wonder where the
info will be sourced from.

I'm assuming someone has researched this. It's not just a product that
would need to be invented, but also a a regularly updated database which
could mean we have to pay a regular subscription.

But perhaps it should be available by law. I don't think people are
pushing legal buttons enough presently.

Damon,

No, I believe that the product code is contained within the actual code
itself, the only difference store to store is the pricing.

Regards,

Mike
