TrueSource

Your product data solution for retail, foodservice and healthcare

TrueSource is an online data pool that makes it easy for you to receive accurate and up-to-date product data from all your suppliers.

With TrueSource your suppliers simply enter their product data once, into a single industry-standard data pool. This means they can manage, maintain and share their data in one place. They publish their data to you, and other customers they trade with, via the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN). Data published to the GDSN is stored in a consistent, industry standard format – so you know all your suppliers will provide you with their product data in the same format.
