In conjunction with Tanzania Barcode Day, THE GS1 Tanzania and the Dar es Salaam Regional Commissioner's office organized a one-week exhibit to inform the public about the usage of barcodes in their products.

"The use of barcodes has brought about a positive revolution for business people in the country, particularly for industrialists," claimed Ms. Fatma.
