Sustainability for packaging



The National Product Catalogue (NPC) is a standardised platform to facilitate the capture and sharing of product master data including packaging sustainability information. It supports suppliers to easily manage packaging data in a single location. The NPC has been supporting the food and beverage sector in Australia for close to 20 years.

Suppliers, manufacturers and brand owners upload their product information onto the NPC and publish it to a range of data recipients, including Australia’s major national retailers. It provides a way for them to manage product master data in a single location and syndicate it to multiple trading partners as well as use it to support internal master data related initiatives that depend on accurate, validated product data.​
