In 3 years, 2000 contributors from around the world have opened the data for 50 000 food products from 134 countries by scanning their barcodes and taking pictures of their ingredients lists and nutrition facts tables.
All the data is available in open data under the Open Database Licence (ODbL) and can be reused by anyone and for any use.
We would like to collect pictures of Open Food Facts contributors in action from all over the world. Send us pictures of you scanning products, of your favorite food store, of the inside of your fridge etc. so that we can publish them here!
