        Kroger Item MDM Complete Initiative Supplier Letter

        • Robert Clark, Sr. Vice President of Merchandising, shares his thoughts on the role of suppliers with regard to Item Data completeness for all Kroger suppliers.

        Kroger requires all suppliers to provide information about products sold in any Kroger format.

        Kroger has partnered with 1WorldSync, an industry leader in global product data management to create the Kroger Vendor Item Portal (VIP), which is integrated with the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) VIP facilitates the process required to submit and maintain item data by storing characteristics or “attributes” of items sold.

        Visit the Kroger / 1WorldSync webpage?for more information about registering for the Vendor Item Portal – the tool for item submission.?Be sure to allow sufficient time (at least a week) for your company’s registration request to process and receipt of access information. ?
