Relevant Standards

The CPG industry pioneered standardization 35 years ago, and continues to drive standards forward today.

The consumer packaged goods industry was the first to adopt U.P.C. barcodes universally, setting the stage for standardization across many other industries.

Today, GS1 US is applying global standards to help CPG companies and grocery retailers improve efficiency, lower distribution costs, ensure safety, and integrity throughout the supply chain.
