About us

 

Our goal : a more efficient supply chain by offering companies global standards for identification, capturing and sharing data.

As an independent neutral non-profit organisation, we bring together companies such as supermarkets, DIY and garden stores, online shops, hospitals, pharmacies and their suppliers and logistics service providers.

GS1 Belgium & Luxembourg is the organisation representing Belgium and Luxembourg of the international GS1 company.

Different bodies contribute to the policy and activities at different levels. Know more about our governance

Stakeholders EN

Consumers, patients, business partners and regulators are demanding more and better product data than ever before. But complex and costly data exchange processes are producing a surge in low data quality.

And that is where GS1 jumps in! We empower industry's digital transformation by enabling businesses to create a digital version of a product that is as good as the physical one. Finally, consumers and patients will benefit from increased product transparency.

 

Our mission

We create a common basis for businesses by uniquely identifying, accurately capturing and automatically sharing vital information about products, locations and assets.  

We enable visibility through the exchange of quality and authentic data.  

We help industries to grow and improve their efficiency, safety, security and sustainability.
