Technical Report


FoodEx2 is a comprehensive and flexible food classification and description system developed by EFSA to support exposure assessment and data collection and exchange in different food safety-related domains. In connection to the classification, EFSA has developed the FoodEx2 browser, an open source tool for European data providers and international organisations like FAO to support the use of FoodEx2. The browser has progressively been enhanced based on the comments of the users of FoodEx2. The latest revision of the browser is available on EFSA’s website and is freely available for download. The present report is a guide for the installation and use of the latest version of the browser and is also available for free download in the EFSA website. This report has been developed as partial fulfilment of a traineeship in the Evidence Management unit at EFSA.
