What “Verified by GS1” means

Verifying the Global Trade Item Number® (GTIN) for each product in a global registry can strengthen trust in better product information for brand owners, data recipients, and ultimately consumers. Add to the mix six basic attributes, and now you have seven reasons to feel more confident that your product data is cleaner in your catalogs, on e-commerce sites, and in marketplaces around the world.

"We are living today in a digital world. Physical products are important, but the data related to the product is even more important. Verified by GS1 must become a stamp—we are building trust.”
— Jean-Marc Klopfenstein, Master Data Lead, Nestlé
