1 Overview

Sysco is implementing the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) as the preferred
method of receiving new and revised product information from its suppliers. This
document is intended for suppliers who will be sending product data to Sysco through the
GDSN and are members of a GDSN Certified Data Pool.

Sysco requires suppliers to publish all of the Foodservice GS1 GDSN Attributes as
referenced in the link in section 3.3.

All communications related to Sysco’s GDSN implementation should be directed to the


Sysco Business Services, Data Services team at GDSN@sysco.com.

2 Sysco Data Synchronization Information

2.1 GDSN / Data Synchronization Contacts


For suppliers who have an existing relationship with iTradeNetwork, please contact your
iTradeNetwork account manager.

Sysco
Name: SBS Data Services
Email: GDSN@sysco.com

2.2 Sysco GLN Information


Sysco Production GLN - 0074865000000

2.3 Sysco Data Synchronization Environment


GDSN Data Pool – iTradeNetwork, Inc.

3 Implementation Overview

1. Select a GS1-certified GDSN data pool.

2. Contact GDSN@sysco.com to confirm that you are ready to publish your GDSN items
to Sysco. Provide your company’s GLN to be used for data synchronization and identify
the appropriate person at your company for Sysco to contact should we need to.
3. Sysco requires all GS1 Foodservice attributes including supply chain, nutritional, image
and allergens. Please refer to the list of GS1 US Foodservice recommended attributes
in the following document:

GS1 US Foodservice GDSN Attribute Guide– Rev. April 2016

Note: In particular, Sysco requires that you provide a Manufacturer Product Code
which is used to help align your GTIN with Sysco’s internal catalog items.

4. Sysco will place a subscription to your company’s GLN. Please wait to see Sysco’s
subscription on your solution provider or data pool interface before publishing items.

5. Items should be published to Sysco as described below:

Publication of the items


 Publish all products Sysco currently purchases.
 Publish all items that you sell to Foodservice and any product that you would
like us to purchase in the future.

As Sysco receives each item, you will receive a CIC “ACCEPT” response. Once you
receive this response, no further action for that item is needed on your part.

At a later time, as Sysco reviews and synchronizes your item with their backend
systems, you will receive a CIC “REVIEW”, “SYNCHRONIZED” or “REJECT” response as
appropriate. If you should receive a “REVIEW” response, please respond to the
associated message by correcting the specified data, or contacting the Data Services
team to clarify.

4 Additional Implementation Details

4.1 Catalog Item Confirmations (CIC)


As a part of the GDSN implementation, you may receive the following CIC response
messages via the GDSN:

Accept:
Item information has been received by Sysco’s Data Pool and is ready for Sysco to
review but no business decision has been made about the data.

Review:
Item information did not pass Sysco’s internal validations or audits. Please review
the message that is contained within the CIC message, address the data
discrepancies and republish the item.
Synchronized:
Item information has passed Sysco’s internal validations and audits. The item has
been synchronized with Sysco’s internal systems.

Rejected:
Sysco does not need to synchronize the item at this time. This message status
means that your GDSN Data Pool has been instructed not to deliver any more
updates for this item to Sysco.

5 Additional Resources

5.1 Product Image Specifications:


Sysco follows the recommendations of the GS1 US Foodservice Initiative.
