GS1 UK partners with the Great British Exchange

As part of our commitment to helping UK businesses grow, GS1 UK has teamed up with the Great British Exchange (GBE), a B2B marketplace for buyers and sellers of British Made Products.

GBE helps British brands to gain the exposure to the retail industry through networking and enabling retail buyers to place multi-basket orders from various sellers in one go. This enables large retailers to be able to try out small artisan-made products without the administrative burden of setting up each as a supplier. GBE’s service and support helps to bring local suppliers to some of the largest high street retailers, like John Lewis.

Through this partnership we are able share our supply chain standards expertise and help businesses get everything set up correctly from the beginning, which helps minimise headaches further down the line.

As part of our joint programme with GBE we are running an all day workshop on 13 October at the John Lewis Distribution Centre in Magna Park, Milton Keynes. This workshop is designed to help small businesses get themselves ready to trade with the high street giants.

If you would like to take part you can see more information and register here. But be quick, places are very limited.

And to celebrate this new partnership, The GBE are offering GS1 UK members a 25% discount* on all celebrity chef Tom Kerridge kitchen products using the code TOMGBE17. You can view the range here.
*offer valid till 30th October
