Question Silly query re: BC550 suffixes

In looking at the BC550C, the BC550CTA is available at a fraction of the cost of the BC550C, at least , in quantities less than 1,000.

What does the TA suffix mean, anyway?
My guess is "Toshiba" made, as the BC550C is obviously Fairchild made. But I'm not sure...

I could be wrong, but I believe the suffixes are just packaging.

TA - tape
BU - bulk (10000 pieces)
TAR - tape on reel?

Anything else is just loose.
