Adding Foods to the Public Database in Libro

Last updated: 23rd April 2024

Help us grow our database by submitting your foods for publication in the Libro community database. To ensure our users are getting accurate information, all foods undergo a rigorous quality check before they are added to the database for general use.

You can opt out of contributing to the database at any time from Settings>Profile>Privacy.

  1. To add a food, click on the Libro logo and then on the barcode icon.

  1. Scan the barcode on the product label. If the food is not already in the database, you will be prompted to ‘add from label’.

  1. Give your food a name, picture, category, nutrition and allergen information and at least one portion size. If you need any more information, we have a detailed guide on adding a food to Libro here. Once you are finished adding all relevant details, click on the orange tick to submit your food.

Your food will be immediately available for you to use, but will have to be reviewed by our team before it is published for general use. The food will undergo a series of checks by the system to ensure the information provided is accurate.

Once a food has passed these system checks, it is passed on to our team for review. The food photo is checked to make sure it does not have any information in it that would identify the user. The food name is checked for accuracy and brand information where relevant. Once this is complete, the food is published to the database and is ready to be used by Libro users around the world!

As a thank you for helping us grow the database, you are awarded 1 star for every 10 of your foods that are accepted and published by our team. Your star rating will appear on foods you have contributed to the public database.
