    Long before the Internet virtualized shopping carts and digitized product catalogs, a simple assortment of stripes and numbers forever changed the way we exchange product data in retail.

    This infographic illustrates how the iconic barcode has evolved over time to address new data exchange challenges in an ever-changing marketplace. For much more information about the evolution of the barcode and how to implement the right one for your company, visit gs1.org.
