Together with committed representatives from trade, industry, healthcare and many other companies, we develop standardised solutions and actively support their implementation. We provide the necessary expertise in logistics, supply and demand management and actively promote the networking and collaboration of all parties involved.

Our promise to you - a common language

Nomen est omen. What it says on the label is what it contains: The GS1 standards are the common language of business that allows us to communicate with each other worldwide, to understand each other, to work together and to make life safer, easier and more cost-effective for everyone. Over two million members worldwide already use GS1 standards.

We join forces for you

GS1's idea of simplifying the flow of goods, values and information with standards originated over 50 years ago in the consumer goods industry. It is this sector in which GS1 is traditionally most firmly anchored. This is also the case in Switzerland. For some time now, however, we have also been applying the knowledge and valuable experience we have gained in the consumer goods industry to other sectors.

Our work focuses on four sectors:
