GS1’s objective is to minimise the chances of error and confusion within the supply chain – GS1 creates a common language so no matter where you wish to sell or export your products, they will be uniquely identified.
They are a global organisation with global standards that:
- Help you IDENTIFY your products or location GS1 Identification Numbers are used to uniquely distinguish all products, trade items, logistic units, locations, assets, and relationships in the supply chain – from manufacturer to consumers.
- Enable you to CAPTURE your product or location data GS1 System Data Carriers are capable of holding varying amounts of data to accommodate different needs such as traceability and expiration dates.
- Make it possible for you to SHARE the data globally Interoperability, made possible by identification standards, data capture standards, and interface standards, allows electronic commerce information to flow through the supply chain.
