What is Foodigree - The origin code


If it´s true that we are what we eat, then knowing the origin of our food means knowing ourselves. The food’s genealogy must become a key element for consumers when they choose what to purchase.


Equally, helping customers to make informed, responsible choices becomes an added value for producers.Quality proven, not only promised.


FOODIGREE is precisely this: a code to trace the product´s origin and to visualize it easily via a smartphone directly at the point of sale. We may call it a “code of honour” that rewards both consumers and producers.


A obvious selection rewarding producers and consumers

All food manufacturers must print on their labelling the number of the production line batch and the sell-by date; it is also compulsory keep a database where are stored the production line batch linked to the origin of the raw materials used for the final product. FOODIGREE´s innovative idea is to make the consumer aware of this information in a simple way, whilst shopping for food. This information allows an immediate, on the spot comparisons amongst products and enables consumers to make informed, responsible choices based on objective parameters that go beyond price. Quality always involves origin and the obvious selection is based on it.

Let´s discover a product´s Foodigree

FOODIGREE is a like a family tree one can easily consult. On each product´s packaging a QR code is printed which can be read by a smartphone or decoded on displays within the point of sale. In both cases, the consumer can access a website containing information on the relevant production batch which is not generic, but highly specific and detailed; thus, the consumer can appraise the quality of the product in question and the producers provide evidence of their reliability and seriousness. Foodigree gives all the information needed to do the right choice, it offers all the reliability to be chosen for.




We spread a new culture of purchase by providing the complete genealogy of each crop

We spread information to increase quality and help raise profits

We believe that technological innovation find fertile ground in the most trustworthy companies and among the most responsible consumers

From today onwards food “digital fingerprint” recognition can be done through a smartphone

Let’s learn to frame the products of the soil from a different perspective                   

We have drawn a line that bring us back directly to the origin of food ingredients

From the smartphone to the field, the origin of foods is clear as an open screen                                     

From the smartphone to the grazing, the origin of foods is clear as an open screen
