Open Food Facts
Find food that's good for you and the planet, and help build food transparency
In addition to displaying the Nutri-Score, the level of product processing (NOVA) or the latest addition to the family, the Eco-Score, the new version of the Open Food Facts app is:

*** Customized ***

Decipher food information according to your preferences in a much more educational and synthetic way. This is made possible thanks to an ultra-personalised scan and search that allows one to always see first what matters most to them. Create personal lists and add products. And of course, the unlimited history and search among 2.3 million products functionality is still there for everyone.

A product that’s not quite the right match? Find similar products that fit your preferences.

Finally, our newest flagship feature allows you to scan & compare side by side several products according to your criteria, so that when you are hesitating between several products in a shop, you can choose according to what is actually on the shelf in front of you.

*** Green ***

The planet can’t wait any longer! Worldwide, food accounts for 28% of greenhouse gas emissions, 70% of drinking water consumption and the majority of packaging waste. We calculate and display the Eco-Score for hundreds of thousands of products (even when it is not yet displayed on the packaging).


Discover the impact of packaging on the planet; although it represents only a small part of the environmental impact of food, packaging is – together with a more plant-based diet – one of the two major levers on which we can all act. The new app offers a comprehensive deciphering of the topic.

Factory & ingredient traceability is something you won’t find anywhere else. Discover where the ingredients came from when we were able to extract this data from the packaging, and which processing plant transformed the product.

*** Educational ***

A continuous scan of the barcodes allows the Nutri-Score to be obtained instantly and to discover whether a product is ultra-processed (NOVA group 4). This means that you can scan several products in one aisle without having to click on a button. A real time-saver when shopping!

Go further with Open Food Facts & Wikipedia: you can now dive deeper into the various aspects of the product you have scanned, directly on Open Food Facts, but also by continuing your research on Wikipedia. We are starting with additives, and many more elements will come in the coming months.

Simple equivalents to better understand the health or environmental impact of a product: the app displays information on the carbon footprint in km driven, or on calories in terms of physical activity.

*** Different ***

Collaborative since its creation in 2012, the app helps users to contribute by making the process more intuitive (because without contributors, Open Food Facts simply would not exist!). By contributing, you become a conscious consumer and participate in a common good that benefits not only other users, but also researchers who use the database to advance science).

Open Food Facts is free, ad-free, with no registration required. It is also private by design: the food data is there to serve YOU, not the other way around, and your personal data, such as your scan history, remains private on your phone and is never sent anywhere else.

A new, more flexible app. With the recurring news of product recalls, ingredient substitutions, and the continued growth of the Open Food Facts project, it became crucial to have an even more responsive app. This is now the case with Flutter technology, which allows us to make frequent and ultra-fast updates for Android and iPhone to keep up with the times, and to enrich the app at a steady pace.

International, collaborative and open source development thanks to many volunteer developers from all over the world who have participated in the development of all these new features. The “Wikipedia of food” available or soon to be available in 30 languages.

Soon you will be able to scan in the far end of the supermarket where network is a luxury. Useful when you’re abroad, or in your basement pantry, offline scanning will be available to everyone in a few months.
