Foodservice GS1 Standards Initiative seeks new work group members

Companies participating in the Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative are calling on fellow industry professionals to join new working groups that are being formed to guide the future development of GS1 foodservice standards.

FoodserviceButton.pngLaunched in 2009, the Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative is a voluntary effort that seeks to drive waste out of the foodservice supply chain, improve product information, and establish a foundation for improved traceability and food safety. The initiative is endorsed by the National Restaurant Association, International Foodservice Manufacturers Association, and the International Foodservice Distributors Association.

Initiative Work Groups and Task Groups act collaboratively across industry and include manufacturers, distributors, and restaurant and foodservice operators.

The new working groups within the foodservice initiative will focus on location information, when to assign a new Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), creation and Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) transmission of digital product images, and accelerating voluntary adoption and implementation of Global Location Numbers (GLNs), GTINs,  and GDSN.

Interested parties must be or become members of the Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative to participate in work groups and task groups. Requests to join must be received by September, 26, 2011. For details, see the Foodservice GS1 website.
