Towards 1 million users (and beyond) for Open Food Facts Mobile App

Towards 1 million users (and beyond) for Open Food Facts Mobile App

Choosing a path together

Last year, we built a new mobile app for Open Food Facts. We are very proud of it, and it’s already used by thousands of people. Now we would like this app to reach an even larger audience that will use it regularly:

  • we want food transparency to benefit many people to have a wide impact on health, environment and value distribution, 
  • we’re a crowdsourced project, based on the work of thousands of contributors all over the world: today’s users are tomorrow’s contributors,
  • this app could be a tool in the hands of a large community of passionate people acting to change our food consumption for the better.

We would like to build together a vision for the app, and collectively decide how we should try to reach this goal. What should Open Food Facts app — or even apps — look like to reach a maximum of people? This gives the opportunity to work all together.
