The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has turned on the alpha of their data standards, reference data and code repository built on the open source registry software that we helped build.

This has gone live with a mixture of simple and complex code lists. For example the Food Type Coding based upon Foodex2.0. The Food Types registers provide a web-accessible copy of the FoodEx2 standardised food classification and description system from the European Food Standards Agency.
