Stewardship for Private Label Products for Sobeys

What is Stewardship?

Stewardship programs help producers of designated products to manage the life cycle of their products, including recycling. Manufacturers, brand owners or first importers are required to pay stewardship fees that can be used for collecting, transporting and recycling products or their packaging.

How can GS1 Canada help you?

The GS1 Canada Stewardship Initiative standardizes product packaging data to meet both manufacturer and retailer requirements. Benefits include:

To streamline your product listing processes, GS1 Canada will help you provide Sobeys Inc. (Sobeys) with your product packaging data through ECCnet Registry – the most comprehensive and continually validated registry of its kind in Canada. Through ECCnet Registry, vendors and retailers can exchange standardized, accurate and up-to-date product data electronically, through a single central location.
