Open Food Facts Days are back! 🎉 2023 Edition

Open Food Facts Days are back! 🎉 2023 Edition

SAVE THE DATE: Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of October 2023 in Paris, France

Each year, we dedicate a weekend to the Open Food Facts community and it is a very special time. 

Why ? 

First of all, because Open Food Facts wouldn’t exist without its community members, in various corners of the world, who are contributing daily with food products data, but also their skills in coding, translation, communication, networking (to name just a couple) and their time.

Secondly, we get to meet each other in person, human to human, not through a screen. 

Thirdly, this time together is for dreaming, generating ideas and solutions for how to make them become a reality and empower more people to make more informed food decisions for their health & that of our planet ! 

Last year, we were very thankful to the Académie du Climat / City of Paris, who let us use 3 of their spaces free of charge (one of which is particularly special as it used to be the Wedding Hall of the former Mairie/ town hall)! 

This year, they are welcoming us once again! 💫

Join us for 2 exciting days of fellowship & creativity around the Open Food Facts food revolution! 

Please note this is a physical event only. If you cannot attend in person, we ask you not to register (it’ll help us greatly with logistics – thanks !). Recordings of the sessions will be made available following the event. No live transmission this year.

Language: Please note that the event will be in English (however, get in touch if you are not comfortable in English, so we can try to find solutions 🙂 ).
