The Foodservice GS1 US Standards Initiative aims to have at least 75% of the restaurant industry adopting GS1 Standards by 2015, to improve restaurant food safety and traceability and cut waste, says Scott DeFife, executive vice president of policy and government affairs for the National Restaurant Association. "Tracing products through the supply chain using GS1 Standards and barcodes helps identify and isolate products in the event of a foodborne disease incident and will support everyday inventory management," he said.
