As a fiercely competitive, multi-trillion-dollar industry, Foodservice is driving forward at an accelerated rate. This forever evolving segment is on the cusp of expansion, encompassing any business, institution or company responsible for meals prepared outside of the home. This extensive market includes manufacturers, distributors and operators, all of whom are tasked and responsible for increased visibility, efficiency and food safety, among other regulatory demands.

The Foodservice supply chain is known to be complex, dynamic, and consumer driven, but with the help of GS1 standards, the process becomes simplified. GS1 enables users to speak a common language and begin to share trusted information, which allows for stronger communication between trading partners, ultimately benefiting the consumer.
