Our producers’ platform is getting a makeover!

Our producers’ platform is getting a makeover!

Inaugurated in 2019 with the support of Santé publique France, the Pro platform enables food manufacturers and retailers to share their products’ information with their consumers for free.

After the logo, the App and the website, it is the Pro platform’s turn to get a well deserved makeover! It now offers a more ergonomic interface and some new features. 🥳 

A big thank you to all the Open Food Facts community for the implementation of this new design, which (we hope) will give even more desire to producers, labels and retailors to participate in food transparency.   

A multi-function platform to meet your business needs

For readers new to the Open Food Facts Pro platform, here’s a non-exhaustive list of what it allows you to do – again, for free! :

Update your products at a large scale on Open Food Facts

You are willing to participate in the transparency of the food industry but find the manual update too arduous?
In just a few clicks, directly import your files in Open Food Facts.
You are clients of the PIMs AGENA3000 or Equadis ?
Even better! We can set up an automated data flow between your system and Open Food Facts.

Identify errors on your product sheets even faster

Thanks to our numerous business rules, we bring up in your
dashboard all products with data quality errors.
Common error : in the nutritional table, the inversion of energy values in kcal and kJ.🙃

Benefit from tips for products recipe reformulation

What percentage of sugar should I remove from my product to go from a C to a B Nutri-Score? The Pro platform allows you to identify at a glance the products for which a minimal reformulation (less sugar, salt or fat) would improve the Nutri-Score of the product, or make it healthier than the majority of products in its category for example.

Compare your products to those of the market

The “Search and Analyze Products” box that allows you to access personalized analyses of your product portfolio.

In the example on the right, we compare the products of the category “cookies”, labeled “organic” according to their content in fat and sugar.👉

Developments on the design side…

In line with our new graphic charter, the Pro platform has been given a makeover and now has its own logo 😎 Useful for finding your way around the Open Food Facts universe.

Also, in the new platform, all functionalities are grouped in one place.

… but also on the functionality side!

    Discover the new “Resources” section in which you’ll find a brand new User guide as well as a link to the most frequently asked questions and their answers.
