Country of Origin is the country where an item was grown, manufactured, or mined. It is denoted by "Product of" or "Made in" followed by country name. It does not include country of design or "Designed In" markings, and it is specific to a physical item.


Having an accurate Country of Origin can lower your duties and taxes in some cases, help expedite your clearance time, and give your customers more knowledge on the products you are selling.
