FoodTrack nutrient labelling database now online

Australian healthcare and food industries will now have direct access to FoodTrack — a food, labelling and nutrient information database — to develop customised insights and identify market trends.

Jointly developed in 2014 by CSIRO and the Heart Foundation, FoodTrack data will be available via online analytics platform Nutritics.

Updated annually, the database contains nutrition data for approximately 45,000 food and beverage products, capturing at least 90% of all fresh and packaged foods sold across four major Australian supermarket chains — Aldi, Coles, IGA and Woolworths.

Food producers can now use the online platform to conduct custom-analytics using FoodTrack data to identify new opportunities or gaps in the market, as well as track changes in the nutritional composition of the food supply. The platform is also designed to help guide public health nutrition strategies.

FoodTrack is an Australian branded food database available via the cloud-based analytics platform from Nutritics. The platform can be accessed via an online subscription-based service.
