The benefits of productDNA

How it works


  • productDNA provides a single industry catalogue of product data and images
  • All product data is independently audited and verified to ensure accuracy and quality
  • Suppliers share this product data and images with retailers in a consistent format

Industry-owned and governed

productDNA is owned and governed by its users, and operated by GS1 UK. As a not-for-profit, member-owned organisation this means prices will be kept low for all users, no matter how small they are. And the retail industry will benefit from the value that a single source of trusted data provides.

When will productDNA be available?

Industry charter

In July 2017, 12 companies – Co-op, Itsu, L’Oréal, Mondelēz International, Nestlé, Ocado, PepsiCo, P&G, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Unilever and Waitrose – all signed an industry charter committing themselves to adopting a single product data and image service.

Members of this group will be implementing the service from early 2018, ahead of the full launch for all grocery retailers, brands and suppliers – currently planned for spring 2018.
