GS1 South Africa is a neutral, not-for-profit standards body that supports over 13,000 companies and businesses locally and globally. Our Mission is to improve the efficiency, safety and visibility of supply chains across physical and digital channels using global GS1 standards.

We are user-driven and governed, and our standards provide a global language of business that enables organisations to identify, capture and share information among trading partners in a uniform, structured, seamless and consistent manner, with the Barcode being the best recognized standard – scanned over 6 billion times each day.

GS1 South Africa is one of 114 GS1 organisations across the world and our key industries are SMME’s, retail, healthcare, transport & logistics, food service and the technical industries.

Our standards strengthen consumer trust and confidence in the products they buy every day by providing them access to trusted product data and empower them to make informed choices. Towards this mission, GS1 is building the world’s largest source of trusted consumer-facing product data.
