Get a Barcode

Barcodes are symbols that can be scanned electronically using laser or camera-based systems

They are used to encode information such as product numbers, serial numbers, and batch numbers. Barcodes play a key role in supply chains, enabling users including retailers, manufacturers, transport providers and other stakeholders to automatically identify and track products as they move through the supply chain. GS1 manages several types of barcodes such as EAN/UPC barcodes and 2D barcodes like GS1 QR code and GS1 DataMatrix.

To sell your products through modern retail channels (in-store and online) you need a GS1 barcode.

When you get your numbers and barcodes through GS1 India, you get a future-proofed, unique identification system that can save money and add value throughout your business.

GS1 barcodes are used everywhere – from in-store point of sale and online selling, through manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors. And today they’re used in the healthcare system too, on drugs, medical devices, and even patients.

We’re part of the global GS1 organisation that defines the standards that ensure our barcodes work everywhere, in every supply chain in every country, with over two million companies globally using them.

A barcode starting with the prefix 890 means that it is issued by GS1 India and that this product is operated by an Indian-registered company.
