Grocery Conference Track

Bookmark this page and check back often for Grocery Community-focused updates and features.

The Grocery Track at GS1 Connect is designed by industry for industry to help companies address business process challenges leveraging GS1 Standards. From fresh foods to consumer packaged goods to grocery retail, industry stakeholders can learn from peers and standards experts how to benefit from the supply chain visibility GS1 Standards can help enable.


Business demands and resource constraints often drive the need to examine problems from fresh perspectives. When you address a supply chain or business process challenge in a new way leveraging GS1 Standards, you become an innovator. As you share your learnings with your peers and discuss the implementation implications with your trading partners, you bring collaboration into the process that is so critical to transforming entire industries. This is what GS1 Connect is all about. See what the Grocery Track has to offer in Austin in 2015.
