EU: Fruit and veg industry speeds up roll-out GS1 location-identification
During the global working session Fresh Produce Standards in September 2012 a European Fruit & Vegetable Working Group was formed. This group, GS1 in Europe - Fruit & Vegetable GS1 standards deployment in Europe, was set up to ensure a harmonised implementation of the GS1 System in the Fruit & Vegetable industry. During Fruit Logistica 2014 the second major Guideline for use of GS1 standards, Global Location Number (GLN), in fruit & vegetable industry will be released with a meeting at the Booth of Frug I Com on Friday 7th February at 11.00 h.
The fruit and vegetable business is a global business with suppliers from all over the world, which need to make efficient trade. With the release of this guideline the Fruit and Vegetable industry takes the next step in uniform identification for locations by releasing the GS1 in Europe – Fruit & Vegetable Supply Chain Location Identification Guideline. The use of GLN is independent of your company’s role in the supply chain. GLN is more and more used in business for tracking & tracing and certification (e.g. GlobalG.A.P., Q&S). Not only in business, but also governmental agencies have started to use GLN as unique global identification key (e.g. KCB - Dutch Quality Control Agency). Especially for board members and other managers a separate publication of this European group is available. It’s called the Value Proposition. This publication emphasizes the added value for Fruits & Vegetable industry by using GS1 standards in the target market Europe.

GS1 Germany shows the future of shopping
Since yesterday, the GS1 Germany has been inviting us to experience the future of shopping. The entirely new concept - GS1 Germany Knowledge Center - re-opened its doors in Cologne after the relaunch. "What we thought was the ultimate benchmark just three years ago, we had to re-evaluate over the last few months. We made room for what may be the biggest challenge for us all - the digitization of the value chain," said Jörg Pretzel, CEO of GS1 Germany, in front of Cologne's first mayoress, Elfi Scho-Antwerpes, the press, and over 200 selected guests from industry, trade, services and research.
Pretzel continiues: "The Knowledge Center offers deep insights into the value adding processes of tomorrow and it concretely symbolizes a future that can be grasped now."

Knowledge Center: the transfer of knowledge and creative impulses
The processes of tomorrow can be experienced in three main thematic focuses within the Center: The Experience Center shows mainly digital technologies. There, the visitors are guided by robots and the virtual guides Ava and Toni through the digital world of adding value. Or they can go on an interactive Shopper Journey. In the Value Chain Experience they are greeted by a staging of the value chain with its six steps, starting from the producer of the raw materials, going all the way through to the shopper. In the Shopper Experience they are led through the world of leisure time and consumption, as the starting point as well as the end of modern value systems, and digital technologies at the point of sale.
In the Innovation Center, visitors can get to work themselves, develop innovative ideas in inspiring rooms and transform them into prototypes. And if you're in town for networking and conferences, you can meet experts from research and industry at the Business Center. "With the Knowledge Center we created a multimedial center for Innovation, Training and Competence. It stands for the transfer of knowledge and creative impulses," says Pretzel.
Shopper Experience: In the supermarket of the future, we can scan all of the products and trace them back to their origin.
Convinced by a high degree of innovation
In 2017, GS1 applied for the certificate of leading innovator in the German middle class for the second time. The price is awarded by Ranga Yogeshwar, Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and compamedia.

Since the opening, 25,000 representatives of businesses meet there every year. The main focus is on innovation for digital production- and supply-chains. It is about topics such as invisible codes, intelligent helpers for the houshold as well as Voice Commerce - voice activated consumption with digital voice assistants.

Changes in the management of GS1 Germany
Last week, Jörg Pretzel, Managing Director of GS1 Germany, informed the board of directors that he will not renew his contract, which ends this year. His position will be taken over by Thomas Fell, a trading IT-expert.

“It is time, after 15 successful and intensive years leading GS1 Germany, to devote a bit more time to my private life and a few interesting business activities,” stated Pretzel. Under his leadership the company developed to a market-oriented service company and became a highly recognized cooperation platform for a wide range of stakeholders.
Important achievements during the fifteen years Pretzel’s leadership were, amongst others, the world's largest data pool for product information, established in the subsidiary 1Worldsync, the international rollout of the traceability service F-Trace and the creation of an unique knowledge center for the practical demonstration of GS1 solutions.
