GS1(MAURITIUS) LTD trains 30 MSMEs based in Rodrigues to implement GS1 Barcodes

For its Silver Jubilee celebration, GS1 Mauritius pursues its close collaboration with the Government to increase the adoption and implementation of GS1 Barcodes, to further contribute to the economic development of Mauritius and Rodrigues.

This 2-day training follows the Memorandum of Understanding signed in May this year with SME Mauritius Ltd to extend their previous collaboration to also support Rodriguan MSMEs by providing them financial assistance to acquire GS1 Barcodes to access new markets.

It is worth mentioning that the training delivered over 2 days in Rodrigues is a première, whereby 30 Rodriguan MSMEs have successfully followed the training, including officers from SME Mauritius Ltd based in Rodrigues as well as those from Rodrigues Trading and Marketing Co Ltd.

The training delivered in Creole ensured that the participants acquired the working knowledge to implement their barcodes correctly. They understood how to respect the specifications of this international standard to create and print their barcode and thus avoid any possible retailer rejection of their products.

Some feedback received:

''Very enriching experience, which need to be renewed''

''The course is very well prepared and the instructor speaks very well''

''Explanations were very clear''
