ENDORSED
BY AUSTRALIA’S
MAJOR RETAILERS

Most major Australian retailers require authorised barcodes for the products they stock. Not only does this ensure each product is uniquely identified, but it is also critical for inventory management and point-of-sale operations. GS1 provides authorised barcodes to make trading with Australian retailers easy and efficient.

YOUR BRAND REPUTATION IS EVERYTHING, SO DON’T RISK IT!

Have you ever stopped to think about the costs involved with having an unauthorised barcode? Not only do you have the extra design and packaging costs by having to update it with the right barcode, but you also have the reputational damage from having major retailers turn your products away because the barcode doesn't match the product it's on when scanned.

There is a reason why major Australian retailers require a Barcode Verification report from GS1 Australia. Don’t put your reputation at risk, get your globally authorised barcodes from GS1 Australia, and join a community of brands and business’ to help you grow and success.
