Finding new ways to leverage the power of supply chain visibility

GS1 Standards makes it possible for the retail grocery industry to identify, capture and share product information along the supply chain.

The GS1 US Retail Grocery Initiative is bringing industry stakeholders together to address business opportunities in three focus areas: product information and images, operational efficiencies and supply chain visibility.

Consumer packaged goods (CPG) organizations were the first to use the U.P.C. barcode from GS1 US more than 40 years ago. Today, approximately 5 billion daily scans of U.P.C. barcodes in supermarkets, convenience stores, and other retail settings bring traceability, efficiency, visibility, and security to supply chains around the globe.
