A strong supporter and vector of Nutri-Score, since the very beginning

A quick look at our efforts to promote the Nutri-Score, since 2014.


Early Nutri-Score advocates, for public health

A simple way to compare products in a supermarket, ideally without any app.

A vintage version of the Nutri-Score logo

When we heard about the "5 color system" back in 2014, we asked the formula to Prof. Hercberg, and started computing it on all the French products we had collected (French), as well as all other worldwide products we had.

Collaborating with the EREN research team

We got to meet the EREN research team to better understand their scientific needs and the improvements they need in Open Food Facts.

Towards a generalization of Nutri-Score

In an ideal world, people shouldn't have to use a mobile app to understand their food. That's why we think Nutri-Score should be compulsory on all packaging, across the world, and we encourage you to relay the EU petition to your readers.


Creating technology to support the Nutri-Score

We created and continue to create bleeding-edge technology to support the Nutri-Score at very large scale, breaking down barriers to adoption.

Showing the Nutri-Score on mobile

The Open Food Facts mobile app for Android and iPhone and website have shown the Nutri-Score since it was created in 2014, and have greatly helped its democratization to other 15 million unique visitors over the years.

Nutri-Score vision network

Our vision algorithms are able to recognize a Nutri-Score in colors, black and white, and also recognize the right letter.

An upcoming producer platform to help increase the adoption of NutriScore

Producers will be able to compute the Nutri-Score easily on their products, privately test reformulations of their products, and get improvement suggestions to get a better Nutri-Score.


Creating an ecosystem around the Nutri-Score

We provide opendata to expand the number of actors showing and using Nutri-Score to final users.

Generating Nutri-Score data for research, public actors and producers

Our daily exports and self-service tools help producers, researchers, consumers, and public actors make more data driven decisions.

Creating an ecosystem of apps and devices

150 startups and large groups use the Nutri-Score computed by Open Food Facts.
