Foodservice Images

The Foodservice Images tool provides a series of product images tailored to meet the requirements of the foodservice industry.

A single, three-dimensional, high-resolution image is taken for each packaging level in the product hierarchy. Individual images are arranged into a montage for use in product information cards (PIC), an essential tool of trade in the foodservice sector. The individual images can be used in electronic product catalogues or commercial portals.

The Vault
Images captured by the Foodservice Image tool are available in The Vault, GS1 Canada's secure tool for your images and data content.

The Vault uses a one-to-many principle. You can save time and money by submitting products once and have them shared with all of your trading partners, who will benefit from the perpetually cleansed images and data content.

Images within The Vault are available to manufacturers and retailers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
