Welcome to Everything Food
The Everything Food story began in 2012 when founders Peter Balsells and Dan Doble – frustrated by the difficulty of manually doing any type of food comparison online or offline – began work on what would become the Everything Food database. The company, which was formally founded in 2016, has been building out its platform ever since. Our mission is a simple one:
Everything Food empowers you to make informed food choices.
Who We Are
The founders and crew behind Everything Food are foodies and data scientists. We’re, dedicated to the idea that it should be easy to know about the foods you eat and the food choices you’re making with every purchase. We’re passionate advocates for transparency and traceability in the food chain, so we’re helping to make the grocery and food manufacturing industries more transparent.
Everything Food also draws regularly on the passion and expertise of numerous outside chefs, nutritionists, and other food industry professionals.
The Everything Food Quality Score (or the EFQS, for short) is the answer to our founders’ simple question: Why can’t we simply compare any type of food at a glance? The answer is “we can,” and that’s exactly what the EFQS does.
It’s simple: Foods get higher scores when they are minimally processed (which maintains the food’s nutrition), have known traceability, and use natural ingredients. Foods have lower scores when they are highly processed and lose the food’s nutrition, have unknown traceability, and use less natural ingredients. It is very intuitive, the more you know the easier it is to choose.
