“GS1 standards enable higher operational performance in volatile times”

Since the start of the 21st Century we have seen unprecedented business volatility in Ireland and globally on many fronts – economic, social and technological – which has continually challenged the supply chain capabilities of many businesses and organisations. In meeting these challenges, GS1 Ireland is proud to have supported our 3,000 plus members in Ireland, and more than 1.5 million other members in the wider GS1 community worldwide, enabling them to grow efficiently, sustainably and safely through the use of our standards and solutions.

To address rapidly developing and changing customer needs, our standards have enabled the trading companies and organisations we serve to identify, capture, share and use information accurately and confidently, creating a common language that underpins supply systems and processes across more than 20 sectors worldwide.

Mike Byrne, Chief Executive, GS1 Ireland
