Creation of database
In order to fulfill its missions, the Observatory collects data on the nutritional characteristics of food products, and regularly enriches and updates the Oqali database.
The database is comprised of the following data:
nutritional composition according to the parameters provided in type 2 nutritional labelling;
nutritional and health claims appearing on the packaging and their position;
The Observatory also collects socio-economic data about the products under study:
quantities sold in France.
Retrospective data is also included in the database in order to attest to the efforts made by the manufacturers.
