Foodservice Images

The Foodservice Images service offered by GS1 Canada Images is 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.
