GS1 Webinar: Traceability from Start to Finish

by Josh Thorp, on April 20, 2021

As consumer expectations evolve, it’s more critical than ever to avoid mislabeling and counterfeit items, minimize manufacturer errors, and address unsafe products, no matter what your industry.

The rise of eCommerce has fueled a rapid increase in the trade of counterfeit goods around the world, creating a $2 trillion challenge for consumer brands. While the top four categories of products impacted are apparel, footwear, jewelry, and handbags, brand protection and traceability take on a new meaning when considering the life-or-death impact of counterfeit products in the food, beauty, and auto parts markets.

To avoid unnecessary costs and potential supply chain disasters, traceability solutions allow authentic products to be “visible” anywhere around the world, thus protecting brands and consumers, alike.
