Responsible food chains as a mission
We are a team of multidisciplinary experts – bound and determined to improve the planetary conditions for life.
Biocode was born from the need to find solutions for decarbonising food production, which is essential to reverse global heating.
Achieving a sustainable food system is a collective task in which the entire food chain must participate.
Biocode’s roots lie in Finland, in the land of innovations and “sisu”, which stands for persistent determination and courage. We develop a carbon footprint calculator that allows the entire food chain to measure its operations and make more sustainable decicions.
Reducing the climate impact of food is possible with reliable data-driven operations. Information about the climate effects of food is often incomplete, which makes it difficult for food industry operators to take effective responsibility measures. The climate impacts of food are often evaluated on a one-time basis, which is time-consuming and expensive for producers. We believe that finding out climate effects should be easy and fast!
To solve this challenge, we developed an easy access carbon footprint calculator for the food industry. The service helps food companies to find out and reduce the climate impacts of their products and to communicate these impacts to their stakeholders in an understandable way. With Biocode, food producers get science-based information about their products cost-effectively.
We support food brands on their journey towards carbon neutrality. We are guided by the principles of openness and transparency. The most successful companies today and in the future are those that invest in solving global sustainable development challenges.
Our values are the fundamental cornerstones of everything we do at Biocode. They form our company culture and guide our day-to-day operations. Our values are reflected in the services we provide, how we serve and create value for our customers, and how we interact with the world around us.
