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.
