Enhancing Efficiency, Visibility, and Safety

The business of food is changing fast. Margins are thin, competition is fierce, and consumer demands for transparency around product information are stronger. Recalls and outbreaks are on the rise. Cutting waste by enhancing efficiencies and improving food safety is more important than ever.

Since 2009, the Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative has been working to drive the adoption and implementation of GS1 Standards within the foodservice supply chain. The industry's goal is to have 75 percent of the foodservice industry (measured by revenue) using GS1 Standards by 2015. With that kind of widespread use, these standards will drive measurable improvements in efficiency, product information, and safety.

How is your foodservice organization driving efficiency? How are you meeting consumer and regulatory demands for more, and better, information? How are you managing recalls and ensuring compliance with the new requirements associated with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the Food Safety Modernization Act?
