Calling All Innovative Independent Grocers!
Are you a member of the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG)? Do you want to be recognized as an innovator and leader across the industry? If so, then click here to learn how to apply for GS1 Canada's Innovator's Award.

In the early 2000s, the Grocery sector – represented by key industry associations including Canadian Council of Grocery Distributors (CCGD) and Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG) – approached GS1 Canada with a request to create an industry–wide solution for the exchange of accurate and timely product information. Working with industry, GS1 Canada developed ECCnet Registry, Canada's national product registry, as the single source of truth for the exchange of accurate and timely product information.

Today, Canada's Grocery sector continues to utilize ECCnet Registry and works diligently to achieve its goal of complete product information and 100% data accuracy in ECCnet Registry. Furthermore, the Grocery sector has also been a leader in engaging in other GS1 Canada value–added services – namely GS1 Canada Images, GS1 Canada Product Recall, and ECCnet Item Certification – to realize further benefits to their business.

Health Food Grocery Sector

The recent surge in health food offerings has meant an expansion of what is considered the traditional Grocery sector. Today, GS1 Canada is working with this new segment to help grow the category and increase product sales across different Grocery sector channels.

Effective data management tools play a key role in today's data–driven marketplace. Sharing standardized product information enables a variety of business processes related to listing the product, selling, marketing the product, and accurately compensating its supplier.
