Palau believes that continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection. That’s why we’ve created an app that helps you buy products that are doing right by the planet and your belly, but leave room for living the good life as well.
We’re Palau, and we’re inspiring people to make more environmental everyday food choices.
Sounds intense? We promise we’re not.
Scan food items to understand their impact
Download our app and start scanning! It’s as simple as that really. When you’re in the supermarket or when you get home, scan your food purchases through the Palau app to find out their environmental impact and nutritional benefits.
Discover the eco-score of +580K food items
The Palau ‘eco-score’ is based on two criteria: ‘The Life Cycle Assessment’ and the ‘Bonus Malus System’. This is all about how a product impacts the environment throughout its whole life cycle, and then the variables within this cycle that change between companies, allowing the score to be improved or reduced. Labels, packaging and biodiversity will also impact the eco-score. Find out more on the app.
Good for the planet & your belly with nutri-scoring
The nutri-score is calculated using the data listed on the package for 100g of the product. There are two aspects we take into consideration: 70% Nutritional Quality - taking into account the positive and negative nutrients in the product and 30% Additives. The calculation method is based on the nova-score — 1) Unprocessed and minimally processed foods, 2) Processed culinary ingredients, 3) Processed foods, 4) “Ultra-processed” foods.
