  1. Better CSS for Nutrition Label

    It should be easy to integrate slightly better CSS for laying out the Nutrition Facts label. Similar to (but not necessarily jQuery based) http://dev2.nutritionix.com/html/label-jquery-plugin/html/demo-mini.html

  2. Support multilingual packaging.

    In Canada, packaging has labels in both enCA and frCA.

    This is particularly difficult for ingredients, which would be nice to be able to input in both languages.

    For an example of the current compromise for labels like this, see: http://world.openfoodfacts.org/product/06792800/diet-cokeTM-coke-diete-coca-cola

  3. Android app : Traffic light rating system / Système d'information «Feux tricolores»

    Grace au "Open Food Facts", j'ai pu créer une application Android appelée "NutriFlash" qui permet en scannant le code barre d'un produit alimentaire, d'afficher son score nutritionnel sous forme de feux tricolores (système d'information nutritionnelle qui renseigne sur la qualité nutritionnelle globale des aliments en prenant en compte les calories, l'apport en sel, en graisses saturées et en sucres ajoutés)

  5. Dangerousness of food additives

    Not all food additives are good for your health. There has been an increase in inflammatory bowel disease since the 1950s and 1960s, which corresponds to the increase in the use of food additives in prepared foods. The Good to Know website gives a classification and some are to be avoided. Perhaps it would be possible to add a dot (green/orange/red/black) according to these additives.

  6. Provision of country-specific product exports to subdomain

    It would be very helpful if an export of the country-specific products in the respective language (for example 3045140105502) would exist on each subdomain. The current export gives me the English name of the product, but if it is needed in German, then it doesn't do much, because the name is different.

    I think an alternative could also be to increase the CSV export limit of the data so that you can download all products of a subdomain.

  9. Handle updated product changes for updated ingredients/nutrition

    Back sometime around end of 2019 or 2020 Kirkland brand updated their protein bars where one notable change was swapping the old problematic "dietary fiber from tapioca starch" for "soluble corn fiber". I can edit the existing entry (https://world.openfoodfacts.org/product/0096619356096/cookies-and-cream-protein-bar-kirkland-signature) but ideally the site can offer functionality to duplicate or link to existing UPC codes a new entry for say "2020 US version" in cases where both old and new products are on the shelves at the same time due to back stock. In general it could also be helpful to see how product ingredients and nutritional characteristics change…

  10. linked data

    while the data grows it could be interesting to have the data available by SPARQL and on the cloud LOD.
    If you like the idea and would like to have some help on that i could contribute directly too.

  11. How to handle multipacks?

    So, it so happens that I added a product which is a yogurt multi pack with 5 different types of yogurt. The pack strap has the only barcode, each yogurt cup doesn't have any.
    The problem arises when I want to specify the ingredients and the nutritional values, as there is 5 of each for each type of yoghurt.
    How should we tackle this?
    I guess I could calculate the average nutritional values and that would solve it, but what about the ingredients? They vary.

    Here's the example. It's in Portuguese but you get the gist:

  13. getting started guide

    i can't find a guide what i should do to contribute.

    i installed the app, registered an account, log in, scan a product and uploaded pictures. there is no information how to chose the categorie and what categories are used. there should be autocomplete in these fields and the ingredients should get OCRd from the pictures.

  15. Products in Categories have to show the NOVA score besides the Nutri score.

    I would like the app when browsing Categories to show the NOVA score besides the Nutri score. NOVA is more important to me. Now I have to click at the individual producs in a categorie to see NOVA.

  16. Include information on a products environmental impact

    Not sure how yet, but it would be of immense value to build a database that includes environmental impact of products, packaging and production process, including the farming of it's ingredients. By using a wiki based approach information about the production process and specific sources of the ingredients and farming practices of all the ingredients could be investigated and shared. Maybe a research team can set this up?

  20. How to handle products available in only some countries, and products available in multiple languages? (question)

    2 related questions from Javichu:

    • Products that are not available in all countries where a specific language is spoken.

    Do you think that make sense have not only different versions for languages but also for countries?. There are 20+ countries that speak spanish. And every one have its own and different products. We rarely see in Spain products from Mexico, Argentina or elsewhere. Indeed, we see quite a lot more products from the European Union than from other spanish speaking countries. So, it doesn't make sense that a search returns you products that never ever you are going to see…
