More than six billion scans per day are conducted for GS1 GTIN Barcodes present on over 100 million products.
Grocery Retail Chains, Supermarkets, and Hypermarkets: Why GTIN Codes are essential for product labeling
In Italy, companies such as Auricchio, Barilla, Bauli, Bennet, Conad, Consorzio Coralis, Coop Italia, Crai, D.IT Distribuzione Italiana, Despar, Esselunga, Ferrero, Gruppo Lactalis, Gruppo Nestlé, Gruppo PAM, Kellogg Italia, Lavazza, Metro Italia, Parmalat, Penny Market, Sutter, Végé Retail and many others utilize GS1 GTIN codes.
To ensure that GTIN Barcodes comply with GS1 standards, our “Codifica” Service is the ideal solution. It is important to verify that the applied GTIN Barcode is accepted by the customer or to request a customized one.
For labeling with GTIN Barcodes in supermarkets and similar stores, it is always advisable to coordinate with the customer’s coding department.
For minimarkets, local distributions, or when full traceability is not required, the GTIN Barcodes with shared prefixes provided by our “Standard” Service are more than sufficient.
It is no coincidence that the GS1 standard is widely used, and the GTIN Barcode uniquely identifies the product and packaging worldwide. For eCommerce, you must identify products with a GTIN Barcode, just as it is done in stores or supermarkets.
