Producers' data are welcome in Open food Facts and have a dedicated platform.
    
Thousands of producers already publish their data into Open Food Facts database.

 +
* you can send it with your personal email

== Special status for data send by identified producers ==
As an Open Food Facts contributor, you can help to spread the world and contact producers to ask them to publish their products. Here are ready to use emails:
+
When producers send their data thanks to producer platform, they enter a special status. Data send by the producers are supposed to be the same as the data printed on the package, and the producer platform also show potential quality issues to the producers, so we use to trust these data. As a consequence:
* Invitation to join: [[Producers' data/Email invitation|English]]; [[FR:Données_des_producteurs/Email_d'invitation|French]], [[LT:Gamintojų_duomenys/El.pašto_pakvietimas|Lithuanian]].
+
* data and pictures send by the producer are locked and protected from contributors modifications during one year; the data is controlled before import and products with quality control issues are not imported
* Email follow-up (when the producer has already joined Open Food Facts public website), in [[Producers'_data/Email_followup|English, French and Lithuanian]].
+
* data can still be modified by special roles on Open Food Facts platform: administrators and moderators
 +
* missing data can still be completed by any contributor
 +
* picture send by contributors are stored in the platform but not taken in account if the producer has sent one since one year
 +
* tags can also be updated by contributors (labels, countries, ...)
 +
* after one year, if the producer hasn't updated the product, all data can be modified by anyone
