GS1 standards help operators, wholesalers, distributors and suppliers provide better customer service

The foodservice industry has seen enormous growth in recent years. At the same time there are major changes in customer behaviour and needs. This is creating new challenges – and opportunities – for foodservice operators and wholesalers.

  • Customers want more and more information about the food they eat – such as nutritional information or the source of ingredients
  • The growing range of outlets and menu choices are putting increasing pressures on supply chains, which in many cases are based on old manual systems and processes – causing inefficiencies, poor customer service and lost sales
  • New legislation, such as FIC Regulation EU 1169/2011, has added yet more complexity

Which is why we work with everyone in the industry, driving the adoption and implementation of GS1 standards, and helping you to increase efficiency across the supply chain – so you can meet these growing customer demands – now and in the future.
