Asia Pacific

Asia-Pacific is a dynamic and diversified fast-growing region.

Governments and industry are focused on increasing trade flows and cross-border efficiencies—and we see increased regulatory pressure for improved food and consumer safety.

Key GS1 projects underway in Asia-Pacific include:

  • Global data standards for improved efficiencies and safety in international supply chains
  • Pharmaceutical anti-counterfeit supply chain security
  • Agri-food trade facilitation food safety controls
  • Cross-border traceability

We are seeing an increased demand from government for traceability in food safety systems.
