It is a fact that supply chains are getting complex worldwide. So, your products can get tampered with, counterfeited, or adulterated at any stage. There could also be high chances of product recalls, diversions, and logistic errors. This is generally due to a lack of uniformity in labelling & supply chain across the world.

GS1 barcode on products improves sharing of trusted data across supply chain stakeholders and prevent above-mentioned problems in the supply chain. This grows your business and empowers your consumers.


What is a GS1 barcode?


GS1 is a non-profit organization that develops & maintains global standards for business communication. GS1 standards begin with GS1 identification numbers (identifiers). They provide links between items and their information.

GS1 barcode is a symbolic code that has an encrypted set of standard information. These barcodes encode information such as key identifiers (product, shipment, location, etc.) and key attributes (serial number, batch, dates, etc.) via GS1 syntaxes.

GS1 linear barcodes/ 2D barcodes are scanned with laser or camera-based systems to decrypt & access the information.
