Foodservice Conference Track

Foodservice trading partners are requesting more information than ever before and GS1 Standards make it possible for companies to leverage the power of information by identifying, capturing and sharing data about products, locations and more.

Foodservice is continuing its momentum toward utilizing Global Location Numbers (GLNs), Global Trade Item Numbers® (GTIN®s) and sharing data through the Global Data Synchronization Network™ (GDSN®).  GS1 Connect is the answer to how you move your business forward!
