background fmcg in germany
Background FMCG in Germany
  • Well established national classification system for FMCG in Germany since the 1970s
  • Maintained by GS1 Germany since 1978, mandatory in Master Data Pool from the beginning
  • Limitations:
    • 4-digit-code: no space for improvement and new products
    • German language only
    • No attributes
    • Full migration to GDSN in Germany by 2013/2014 (GPC is mandatory)
motivation
Motivation

Our user community aims for solutions based on global standards and elimination of national solutions

Upcoming GDSN migration requires GPC usage (not just the mandatory “99999999”)

Enhanced use of classification expected as retailers have large master data projects

GPC is seen a solid solution prepared for future developments and fulfilling most of Germany´s market needs

Advantage of early adoption

  • “As a leading retailer who is active in 32 countries, we strongly support the use of global standards replacing national solutions. GPC is fulfilling our requirements for classification to support Metro´s master data processes”

GPC in Fresh Food

Movement in Europe towards GTIN for fresh fruit & vegetables, replacing generic national numbering systems: “It depends on the right GTIN”

GPC-structures were established for this area in the past 3 years

For fresh fruit & vegetables the GTIN is often not available from the beginning, alternative identification in the ordering process is needed

GPC is filling this gap to establish a common language between trading partners
