Barcode Symbology

Foodstuffs South Island Limited, as a member of GS1 New Zealand, fully endorses the use of appropriate barcode symbology on all retail and distribution units.

Should a vendor, for any reason whatsoever, place a use by/best before date on a retail unit and such a date is within 90 days of manufacture then this information must also be placed on the distribution unit in a "machine readable" and "human readable" manner.

Should a vendor, for any reason whatsoever, place a use by/best before date on a retail unit and such a date is greater 90 days of manufacture then a standard GS1 carton barcode should be used.

This barcode should be affixed to the carton and vendors must ensure that only one SKU with a common use by/best before date is used on each pallet. Standards for the above symbology are maintained by GS1 New Zealand.
