Delivering High Quality & Validated Food Composition Data
We are a non-profit international member-based organisation. Our aim is to harmonise and provide access to food composition data and supporting information to underpin food and public health research throughout Europe. EuroFIR AISBL also promotes international cooperation and harmonisation of standards to improve data quality, storage, and access.
EuroFIR AISBL is the only independent food composition data resource in Europe bringing together 30 food composition datasets from 29 countries at a single point of entry.
