FOODITY puts the control
of your food and nutrition data in your hands.
FOODITY is an impact-driven project funded under the Horizon Europe programme involving 7 partners from 7 countries.
Over the next 3 years (2023 – 2026), we will work together to ensure a dynamic ecosystem of digital solutions for food and nutrition that respect citizens’ rights to personal data sovereignty in Europe.
Better food and
Data for the people
Data for the planet
We are convinced that the data economy offers great opportunities to improve food systems.
With the right data-driven technology, citizens can influence the overall environmental impact of food systems and the quality of diets that system actors (producers, distributors, retailers) offer to consumers. How? By demanding better, healthier, and more environmentally friendly food choices.
However, most popular tools and platforms (e.g. wearables and software applications) are closed and limit citizens’ rights to personal data sovereignty and transferability.
At FOODITY, we are on a mission
to create a dynamic European ecosystem of digital solutions for food and nutrition respectful of citizens’ right to personal data sovereignty — and demonstrate the potential of data-driven innovations in this area, engaging citizens in their development.

“FOODITY has the ingredients to make a significant difference in how citizens use and control their personal data, leading to better and more sustainable decisions. We are confident that our pilot programme and funded solutions will show how increased control over personal data can lead to better personal nutrition choices and also contribute with knowledge to ensure more sustainable food systems.”
