Open Food Facts celebrates its 5th anniversary with more than 1000 cakes!

Open Food Facts is a citizen-led, non-profit organization that is fully supported by a volunteer team that offers everyone the opportunity to participate in collecting and collecting public interest data on the food we eat.
The data, which is related to food and nutrition, but also to health and the environment (origin of ingredients, manufacturing sites, palm oil etc.) is made available to all (as open data) and is reused in many other services and applications. Open Food Facts data has also been reused for scientific studies (notably by Professor Hercberg’s team for the Nutri-Score simplified labeling system).
We all eat 3 times a day and we are all concerned!
