The FEDA Data Portal and Support Center, formerly
called the FEDA Data Repository, is a fully editable, easy-to-use database of
product information from foodservice equipment and supplies manufacturers. In
creating this database, FEDA worked with manufacturers and dealers to develop
modern and uniform product data standards for each product attribute that will
improve data accuracy and efficiency for the industry over time, as well as
The portal continues to evolve. FEDA is constantly
working with its technology partner to develop and add new features and
enhancements to make the portal even more intuitive and easier to use. The
association consults with manufacturers and distributors on the changes they
would like to see and works to implement them.
The FEDA Data Portal opens up competition for
innovative technology in the industry. The accessibility of the database
combined with its data governance standards have encouraged many tech companies
to reach out to FEDA about aligning with the Data Portal to build new software
for our industry.
Manufacturers are encouraged to visit the Manufacturer Information page to find documents and videos that will help them
understand how to create their product data and to view the required and
optional data attributes for products.
Dealers may visit the Dealer Information
page to view documents describing the available product attributes and read an
overview of how they can access product information through the Data Portal.
