10.02.2018 : Barcoding

Mass distribution via self-service like since the 70ies of the last century in the USA and Western Europe would have been not possible without product-identification by barcodes and scanning in the cash-zones of supermarkets. Since 2005 the national bar-code institutions are harmonized towards a Global Standard (GS 1) worldwide:(see LINK Intro GS 1).

"For Certifications within the Thematic University Network Food knowledge about the main international Standard Setters is absolutely necessary" Prof.Dr.B.Hallier stated "because they are driving forces for modern distribution from farm to fork".
