Foodsteps shows food businesses and consumers the carbon footprint and environmental impacts of their food.


The company started its journey at the University of Cambridge researching methods to track the impacts of food on the environment from farm to fork, and leading trials on the carbon footprint labelling of food.


The business now works across the food sector to integrate carbon footprint and environmental impact data to make sustainable choices easier.
