Increasing consumer confidence in food safety is a collaborative effort among businesses, trade associations, industry groups and regulatory agencies. GS1 US works with all of these stakeholders to enable product traceability and food safety leveraging GS1 Standards. Browse the information, tools and resources presented here to better understand our role and how your organization can get involved to learn about and do more for food safety.

For us, it’s all about being able to trace products forward to restaurants in order to protect consumers. Their expectations are growing every day to know what’s in the food they’re eating, and be confident that it’s safe."
