Eco-Scores, or Environmental Labelling with Magic Fridge 🌏
We explain everything right here!
Eco-scores: what are they?
You can choose between the two following definitions: 😎
The simplest definition : indicators reflecting food’s environmental impact (is that clear enough?)
A longer, more complicated (yet more precise) definition : indicators sorting food products or ingredients for one recipe, using their environmental impact ranking from A (low impact) to E (high impact). This tool helps consumers make a decision while taking into account the origins, production modes, transport, packaging, seasonality, and so on.
What are those for? 🧐
- Because they look good!
- Because J-Lo asked us!
- Because eco-scores inform users of the impact of their choices, and give tips to a more responsible way of life 💪🌎
Eco-scores on our App: 📱
If you know the app already, go to a recipe .
If not… Well this is wrong, so so wrong…🤬
Eco-scores show on each recipe, up on the left, showing this symbol 🍃
You can’t miss it.
Eco-scores will vary depending on the ingredients in the recipe, and what you want to use or not. It’s a kind of magic! ✨
In short, this environmental label will help you choose the best ingredients to put in your recipe in order to cut our impact on our beautiful planet. ❤
The purpose of Eco-scores 🎯
Eco-scores were created to try and answer questions on the environmental impact of the food industry. Find below a few pictures we drew to help you understand:
We know the facts. Now let’s take action!

How are these eco-scores built ?
Eco-scores are based on lifecycle analysis, together with a bonus-penalty system to build a score out of 100 . This result is shown with letters from A to E.
What’s in this formula?
- Public data: quantitative data from lifecycle analysis. This “Agribalyse” Database was created by experts
- Data that were not taken into account in lifecycles analysis, but give more information on positive or negative environmental impact
Impacts are studied through the entire lifecycle of each product.
