Financial Schemes

Supporting MSMEs 

GS1 Mauritius is collaborating with institutions to support micro, small and medium companies (MSMEs) to acquire GS1 Barcodes through financial assistance. 

The aim of these schemes is to encourage MSMEs to adopt GS1 Barcodes and GS1 Standards to upgrade their products and gain easier market access. 

MSMEs will further reap the numerous benefits namely:

  • Gain efficiency whilst enjoying lower costs through inventory management
  • Benefit from the endless possibilities with GS1 Standards
  • Export without any modifications to their barcodes, since GS1 Barcodes are internationally recognised 
  • Implement product traceability solutions
  • Due to their uniqueness, GS1 Barcodes enable combatting counterfeited products, contributing to gaining consumer confidence
  • Gain international visibility through GS1 GEPIR
