The famous mobile app Yuka finally comes to Ireland! For months now, Yuka has been receiving many requests from Irish consumers asking for the app to be available in Ireland : so we did it! Yuka allows you to scan the barcodes of food and personal care products and instantly see their impact on your health. An overall rating along with more detailed information help you to quickly understand the analysis of each product scanned. When a product has a negative impact on your health, Yuka also recommends similar but healthier alternatives.

We are 100% independent Product reviews and recommendations of healthier alternatives are done in an impartial way via analysis of our database to determine the highest scoring similar products. No brand or manufacturer can influence our recommendations in any way. Furthermore, there is no in-app advertising. Yuka generates revenue from the premium version that offers access to additional features, as well as from its online Nutrition Program (currently only in French).
Worldwide success Launched in France in January 2017, Yuka now has 18 millions users and is available in 8 other countries : Ireland, UK, Canada, the United States, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain and Luxembourg. Five million barcodes are being scanned on Yuka every day.
Proven impact on users and brands A recent survey (https://yuka.io/en/social-impact/) of 230 000 Yuka users showed that Yuka not only helps users make more informed choices, but also contributes to put nutrition at the heart of the consumer’s concerns again. Many brands have responded to this increased consumer awareness by reformulating their products with healthier ingredients.
An extensive database Yuka has been building its own database which currently has 1.5 million products registered (including 70% of food products and 30% of cosmetic products). Yuka recognizes 80% of the products available in Ireland. For those that aren’t in Yuka’s database, users have the possibility to add them by submitting product information and uploading pictures of the label into the app. This will allow Yuka to have an even more comprehensive database of products sold in Ireland. A tight control system has been put in place to ensure the information that appears in the app is correct.
