Easily generate PIFs for customers and receive PIFs from suppliers – all in one place.
The widely accepted Australian Food and Grocery Council’s (AFGC) Product Information Form (PIF™) is a food industry tool used by companies across Australia and New Zealand to provide a wide variety of information about food products and ingredients in a single document that meets the information needs for legal and regulatory compliance.
The move from an Excel based form to an electronic Version 6 PIF streamlines the process of recording, reporting and sharing product information.
Imagine being able to manage, find and search all your PIFs in a single place – anywhere – anytime.
Bizcaps PIF Manager™ is a secure web-based portal and repository where you can easily manage the setup, storage, search and sharing of PIFs directly with your customers and suppliers.
As the first licensed online PIF portal solution incorporating the AFGC’s Electronic Food Data System, PIF Manager™ supports food suppliers and their customers across Australia and New Zealand.
Comprehensive audit trail on every field and change logs support users with visibility and control of changes in updated PIFs (created and/or received).
Bizcaps is the only Australian-owned company licensed to provide a V6 PIF portal. Support for your system will be local.
PIF Manager™ pricing plans are simply based on the number of PIFs used throughout your business (created and/or received). Archived PIFs are stored but do not count in your PIF numbers. No gimmicks. No user-based fees apply at all (i.e. read only or full access).
PIF Manager™ is fully supported by our local team, built on our FlowScribe master data management platform, and ships with pre-built integration using AFGC PIF XML messaging standards.
No matter how many PIFs you deal with, PIF Manager™ can be used for finished products as well as ingredients.

Food Technology Disruption – what’s next?
Dr Geoffrey Annison, Deputy Chief Executive at the Australian Food & Grocery Council (AFGC) and Professional Member of AIFST wrote in a recent article for Food Australia magazine: “…change has been the only constant in food production during the modern era – but the rate of change is accelerating. For food companies, their management of information will be paramount to ensuring compliance with all regulations.”
Find out how the AFGC sees modern information technologies, through the PIF, provide solutions to allow disruption in a way which supports industry to flourish and meet the needs of their consumers.
