Bringing Greated Food Transparency to Albania - Call for Open Food Facts Help

Hi all,
I’m Pierre, from Open Food Facts (

Open Food Facts is a worldwide database of food products with ingredients, allergens, nutrition facts and all the tidbits of information we can find on product labels.

It is a non-profit association of volunteers : over 5000 contributors have added 300 000 products from 150 countries using our Android, iPhone or Windows Phone app or their camera to scan barcodes and upload pictures of products and their labels.

Data about food is of public interest and has to be open. The complete database is published as open data and can be reused by anyone and for any use.

Open Food Facts is a collaborative project , and we need help expanding to Albania:

We need help scanning food products using the apps (, translating ( ), and spreading the word.

We are also starting Open Beauty Facts to create a database of cosmetics: soap, toothpaste, makeup etc.

Thank you very much!

Pierre, on behalf of all the other Open Food Facts volunteers

@teolemon have you met @anisakuci9 and have you heard about what we are doing with the OpenAg food computer project - maybe you can introduce yourself there too?

Hello Pierre,

What you are sharing with us seems very interesting.

Hope may I contribute to open food, apart the translation and data entry topics you already mentioned?


Hi @diskmanti,
