Seika product codes were developed by OFSI (Organization of Food-marketing Structure Improvement) to help identify and exchange information regarding fruits and vegetables for sale in Japan. Seika standard product codes are similar, though not identical to, Bejifuru codes. The Seika Code Publish API enables users to publish Seika product codes. This API functions using SOAP calls issued in XML format. The website and all API documentation are provided only in Japanese.
