The GS1 GoScan has been awarded the Victorian iAwards Merit Recipient award in the Consumer Category of the 2013 iAwards.

The 2013 iAwards were judged based on uniqueness, marketability, functionalities/features, quality/application of technology and application of addressing the criteria.

“This award is a testament to the vision, innovation and creativity of everyone involved in the development of the app,” said Maria Palazzolo, GS1 Australia CEO.

“It is great to have the work of GS1, industry and the AFGC in developing the app recognised in this way,” said Gary Dawson, CEO of the Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC). “This app is a great example of innovation being used by food manufacturers to provide rich data to consumers in response to demand for greater information on products.”

Developed in association with retailers, local and international food companies, the AFGC, Australian universities and national health organisations such as Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia, the app helps consumers with allergies, intolerances and special diets by giving them more information about food products.

“As manufacturers and brand owners continue to list their products on our database, the application will increasingly empower Australians to make more informed food choices,” Palazzolo said.

The app is now in the running for the national award, which will be announced on 8 August. GS1 GoScan is available for free download from the App Store.
