GS1 UK is proud to support our charity partner The Honeypot Children’s Charity. Since 1996, the charity have offered both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers, many of whom would otherwise have nowhere to turn to.

They are the only charity in the UK offering consistent support throughout childhood; from the age of five until a child’s 13th birthday.​

Honeypot's vision is for every child to be able to make the most of their one chance at childhood.

GS1 standards in action

We wanted to demonstrate which GS1 standards are being used by Herb to bring you all of this information and to make sure his customers are getting the best experience.

GS1 Digital Link - The QR you scanned to access this website is a digital link enabled barcode. This means that the barcode contains a link that can send the consumer to a website, an app or anywhere on the web to access further information about a product. Soon we will be updating the link to take you to the digital link app. Look out for further information about this.


Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) - To identify Herb’s Honey we have given it a Global Trade Item Number (GTIN). This 13 digit number allows a product to be identified throughout the supply chain and digitally online. In this case the GTIN is embedded in the digital link that then resolves to the Herb’s Honey website. This GTIN also lives online and there is a digital twin of Herb’s Honey which can be searched for via the GS1 global registry.
