The food industry is constantly in search of a better way to both track and trace their assets. Discovering a seamless data collection tool shouldn’t be a puzzle. GS1 Barcode Labels are a perfect tool for improving food tracking.

But what are GS1 labels? GS1 labels are a type of barcode label that follows the standards set by the Global Standards One (GS1) organization. These labels are used to uniquely identify products, locations, and assets in the supply chain and retail industry. They contain important details such as a product’s GTIN (Global Trade Item Number), batch or lot number, expiry date, and serial number. GS1 labels are helpful in accurately tracking products, improving inventory management, reducing waste, and ensuring customer safety.

Traceability within the food industry has become a crucial aspect for companies to maintain their standing in the market. GS1 Barcode Labels are an excellent solution to address this challenge. These labels help in capturing catch weights, lot numbers, expiration dates, and temperature, enabling businesses to track key data elements at receiving, picking, and delivery. Additionally, GS1 Barcode Labels support FSMA Rule 204 Food Traceability Requirements, ensuring compliance with regulatory standards.
