GS1 at a turning point
One scan – infinite possibilities. The barcode exists 50 years. 10 billion beeps a day at the checkout. The next 50 years we will see the new generation of barcodes, with new possibilities for consumer engagement, and with enlarged data accessible via the barcode. In 2027, we roll this out. What does it mean? What can you do with it? GS1 "one stop shop" allows you to identify, create barcodes, share data and create digital links in the same digital hub, and in the future, create your Digital Product Passport.

Smart Packaging – How Pepsico is cracking the code for 1-on-1 Customer Engagement.
As we begin to embark on the journey to replace the current barcode, we have an unprecedented opportunity to transform how consumers digitally engage with their favourite products. The new generation of barcodes enables new capabilities to expand consumer engagement and provide a curated experience tailored to the individual product. This framework will allow expanded sharing of nutritional, brand, allergen, sustainability, pepsi recycling, loyalty programmes, and other consumer centric information.
