Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative: Get Ready…The Time Is Now!
The “business of food” is changing fast...the business models used just a few years ago no longer provide the efficiencies needed today; and increased consumer demand for product information regarding allergens, nutrition and food safety, including recent government regulations, all underscore the need for a common standards-based system to identify, capture and share accurate and timely product information.
By attending this free webinar you will learn what manufacturers, distributors and operators such as Tyson Foods, Inc., US Foods and Sodexo, Inc. already know, and how you can join them:

GDSN Major Release 3.x, A Basic OverviewDate: Tuesday, August 26thTime: 2:00pm – 3:30pm ESTThe Global Data Synchronization Network™ (GDSN®) enables the sharing of up-to-date data and information among trading partners. Periodically, the GDSN schedules a “Major Release”, which will contain significant updates to the network, including some changes that will be non-backward compatible. The next GDSN Major Release is scheduled for 2016, and will bring flexibility to increase efficiency and support regulatory requirements (such as EU Commission and US FDA) and allow you to quickly react and adjust as your business expands. This webinar will cover changes to the Global Data Synchronization Network. Please note that all GDSN certified data pools will have to re-certify as part of this Major Release. Data pools will work directly with their customers to educate on what changes will be made to their tools and systems. The level of impact on any GDSN user will be dependent upon their data pool, and their level of implementation of GDSN.Click HERE to register for this informational webinar.

New! Foodservice Attribute Changes
Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative work groups have identified key improvement areas within food-related attributes to assist implementation across the industry. This informative session explain how these changes will allow you to define product information for better use by trading partners, improve GDSN validations, and decrease data synchronization rejections. Based on these recommendations, the Foodservice GDSN Workgroup created solutions which are currently being implemented by foodservice data pools, and solution providers.

Foodservice product images tell a story. They offer tremendous business value by offering important information, reducing the need for samples, and improving online user experience and merchandising capabilities. They can even help boost sales revenue when language may be a barrier. But, with digital images and formatting requirements varying across trading partners, this business value isn’t always realized. This informative session will put forth guidance and standardized methodology for how foodservice products can be stylized, represented digitally and transmitted through the GDSN, thus reducing complexity and enabling value. It also provides an overview of the new “Product Images Application Guideline” available to support the foodservice industry with implementation.
