ProductSearch is an open and free service that is used to find quality assured and current information about all the products and images found in GS1 Sweden’s database, and is launched for the Swedish market.
Anyone can use the service to view current and detailed trade item information about a product. It is also possible to compare up to four different products with each other.
Search for product information can be done in several different ways, via the unique identity of the product, GTIN, which is linked to the items barcode, but also through, for example, the functional description, trademark or supplier.
The products in ProductSearch are retrieved from several different product categories. In addition to food and beverages, there are products in areas such as beauty & health, health care, household appliances, work wear, mobile phone accessories and toys & games, to name a few. That means that ProductSearch offers a complete service for searching items.
