Not that long ago, shopping for fresh foods meant a trip to a physical store. Today’s consumers expect flexibility and the opportunity to make purchases digitally and on-the-go. Multiple paths to purchase, an increase in regulatory requirements—and a growing need for information about the food we eat—are creating complex supply chains that require accurate data.
However or wherever they shop, consumers will ultimately benefit from improved food transparency and traceability, enabled by GS1 standards.
