Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative

As a member of this initiative, IFMA is partnering with the foodservice industry to identify and overcome challenges using GS1 Standards—seeking to drive waste out of the foodservice supply chain, improve product information, and establish a foundation for food safety through better traceability. Working collaboratively as members of the Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative, we are encouraging the use of open, global standards to improve efficiency, accuracy, and visibility in the foodservice supply chain.
