Introducing SmartLabel™ Extract

Video: How to use SmartLabel™

Today’s consumer is a savvier, more informed consumer, looking beyond the label to ensure the products they buy align with their values and contribute to their health and well-being.

Introducing SmartLabel™ Extract

To facilitate Canadian manufacturers’ participation in Food & Consumer Products of Canada's (FCPC) SmartLabel™ initiative, GS1 Canada is launching a new, value-added SmartLabel™ Extract service to provide the product content you have already certified for faster, more efficient development of your SmartLabel™ consumer webpages.

Having already invested the time and resources in ensuring quality data, you can now also use that content to populate SmartLabel™. Using content you have already certified also ensures you are maintaining data quality and consistency for your products across all platforms.

Because GS1 Canada knows what data SmartLabel™ requires, we can extract and organize data to SmartLabel™ specifications in a format that is already prepared for integration into SmartLabel™ consumer webpage templates.

SmartLabel™ Extract uses certified data from the ECCnet Nutritional Content (for food products) registry and offers flexible extract options for you to receive your data extract, such as downloadable files or an API feed.

Creating SmartLabel™ Pages

It is recommended that data extracts be handled by an IT professional. If you do not have an in-house IT resource, you may need a third-party solution provider to help apply your certified data extracts to the SmartLabelâ„¢ consumer webpage templates. Contact GS1 Canada to find out more about finding an authorized solution partner through our Authorized Partner Program at 1.800.567.7084.

SmartLabel™ lets brand owners provide consumers with detailed product information, allowing them to make informed choices.

GS1 Canada does not administer the SmartLabel™ program in Canada but can help you feature your product data within it.
