In common parlance, many people know the GTIN as a barcode, but technically the GTIN is the number below the barcode symbol itself, and can therefore also be used for other technologies such as 2D barcodes and RFID tags.
6,000,000,000... That's how often a GS1 barcode is scanned each day. This makes GS1 the world's most widely used supply chain standards system in retail.

GS1 Denmark is the Danish division of the global standardisation organisation GS1.
We offer standards and services that support all operators in creating a more efficient, secure and sustainable supply chain. This can involve anything from implementing barcodes and tracking products and shipments - to exchanging master data, purchase orders and invoices.
The barcode, which we see on virtually every product we encounter every day, turns 50 years old. What initally started as a hope to shorten supermarket queues has since - and without most people noticing it - evolved to play a crucial role for food and patient safety. Not just in Denmark, but all over the world.
Now the familiar row of vertical lines is facing a new look and a new wish: to contribute to the development of the circular economy and society's green transition.
GS1 standards provide a global, common language to identify, capture and share quality-assured data.
Our standards can help ensure traceability on anything, be it a liter of semi-skimmed milk, a medicinal product, a pallet, a container, a hospital bed, or a location such as a factory, a warehouse, a shop, a restaurant or even a field.
