PLM TrustLink™ presents at GS1 on the Sustainability Impact of Food on the Global Supply Chain

May 17, 2023

Are you ready for “climate labels” to show the carbon impact of your food products? Hear about the PLM TrustLink™ and The Ohio State University pilot program to use GS1 Standards to help meet climate and sustainability goals.

Murli Ram, Managing Director of PLM TrustLink, and Dr. Dennis R Heldman, PhD., Professor of Food Engineering at

The Ohio State University​, will explore how advances in hardware, software, and evolving standards, such as Electronic Product Code Information Services (EPCIS) 2.0, can help drive increased sustainability in the global supply chain and how this data will support the evolution to “green labels” on food products. The pilot findings go into detail about Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Resource Depletion Potential (RDP), and the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of food products, all attributes needed to measure climate and sustainability goals.

Join us for this special presentation at GS1 Connect on Wednesday, June 7th from 8:15 – 8:45am at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver. Learn more about this innovative pilot program on the distribution chain of frozen mangoes traveling from Peru to Ohio.

PLM TrustLink™ is a comprehensive, cloud-based IoT management solution for automated, touchless, supply chain ecosystems.

PLM TrustLink™ captures key data elements (KDE) and critical tracking events (CTE) data at the item, case, batch and container level, and can extend along the entire supply to provide financial, operational and food safety benefits. Once the product is marked, it can be digitized with a unique birth certificate to be shared within the facility or along the supply chain in a permissioned platform to provide real-time inventory data and status of products to drive cost out of the business.
