GS1 Initiative

About GS1

IMA is proud to support the Foodservice GS1(Global Standards One) US Standards Initiative. The GS1 Initiative is a collaborative industry effort that seeks to improve product data and images, and strengthen food safety through better traceability.


As a result of implementing GS1 Standards, our supplier partners can easily share trusted product data. This allows our distributors to receive product specs in an automatic and efficient way that ensures product data integrity.


100% of IMA suppliers are engaged with IMA in support of GS1.
