What does the foodservice supply chain look like in 2015? Foodservice insiders explain how they see the industry's supply chain taking shape over the next few critical years with the support of the Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative.

The Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative works to drive the adoption and implementation of GS1 Standards within the foodservice supply chain. Their goal is that 75 percent of the foodservice industry will use GS1 Standards by 2015.

"I think the foodservice supply chain is going to continue to get more complex, and as the supply chain evolves, it's really key that all partners work together," said Larry Oberkfell, President & CEO, IFMA. "That's why the GS1 Initiative for Foodservice is so important."

Watch the video to learn how supply chain partners can benefit from participating in the GS1 US Standards Initiative. 

Join the foodservice industry in improving product information, efficiency and food safety with GS1 Standards. For more information, visit www.gs1us.org/foodservice.
