We are looking for super market product data that includes:

  • Food products
  • Ingredients
  • Nutritional values
  • Price

Any suggestions on how to find this information? I'm a non-tech person and have found this a big challenge!

You are looking at a multi-faceted solution. The grocery industry is very competitive, with operating margins around 1 to 2 percent. You are going to need to learn how to tie / relate the databases together. I have a United States of America based solution.

  • Food products: Supermarket API will provide you with a API to identify products within a number of grocery stores, it is free for a 3-week trial
  • Ingredients: Open Food Facts
  • Nutritional Values: The USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference provides nutritional information
  • Price: The aforementioned Supermarket API will allow you access to the price, but for $1,299 per year. This is not an open data solution, but prices amongst grocers is very competitive.
