Open Food Facts wiki is dedicated to documentation and knowledge sharing. It can be also used for project information or other usages.


Wiki gardening is a way to maintain the wiki up to date and efficient.


  • The wiki helps people to better contribute to Open Food Facts.
  • The wiki needs to present things that are not (still) well explained on Open Food Facts websites or tools.
  • If the wiki is not presentable, it loses credibility.


  • Rewrite and refactor to improve readability:
    • typos, misspellings, ...
    • rearrange pages, split long pages into smaller ones, delete pages
  • Categorize pages, to allow exploring things by categories
  • Ensure information is up-to-date [use a category to identify perished contents]
  • make wiki nicer (tip: use Wiki Icons)
