Product Information Database (PID)

When making a declaration for a product, it is important to gather all relevant information of the product. But how do you maintain an overview when you have 100 or perhaps 1000 products and there is a change in the regulation?

For many, it will be a time-consuming task to find out how many of your products contain a certain additive or are provided with a certain claim.

Varefakta’s Product Information Database (PID) provides a better overview of the information on your products and the possibility to organize your data.

Product Information Database (PID)

With help from the database, Varefakta can structure information on your products. The database can be tailored so that it contains the information you need. It is also possible to extract reportsspecific ingredients, claims or net weight, across all products. As a company, you will therefore be able to react and report on your objectives much faster.

  • React quickly in connection with changes in the regulation, for example if an additive is deemed unsuitable for use in food. Here you will be able to search for all products with a specific additive with a few clicks of the mouse.
  • Research and rank differences in net weight and composition based on e.g food categories.
  • Draw lists of products containing primary ingredients originating from a specific country.
  • List products that contain specific allergens both in prescription or from trace labeling.
  • Search for products with certain claims, for example, you will be able to get a list of products that can be placed in a keyhole group, but which cannot have the Keyhole label on them.

Corporate Sustainability Reporting-directive (CSRD)

All large companies in the EU must in the future collect and present data for their societal and environmental impacts. The European Parliament has adopted this with a new directive on sustainability reporting (CSRD). In this context, Varefakta’s Product Information Database can also be helpful in collecting parts of this data. The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) was adopted on 10 November this year and will probably be finally adopted on 28 November. It aims to oblige companies in the EU to uniform and reliable reporting on sustainability. By 2025, it seems that everyone will have to report on sustainability parameters. The rules laid down in the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) will be gradually phased in from 1st of January 2024.
