Piccabi for business

Whether it is an additional functionality for your app or an extensive dataset for your analyses, we can provide you with the tools to bring your health and food company to the next level.


Our vision and our mission

Piccabi is making the world a little less difficult for those people who wish to have a better quality of life. One way to accomplish this “better life” can be taking better care of your diet; the food you eat.

There are also people around the world who have underlying health issues and they need to be careful of the food they eat as well. They have certain foods they should refrain from ingesting and they have to be so diligent with everything they eat including consulting packaging, Googling the food for its contents, asking waiters about the food etc.

Piccabi will make it easier for so many around the world to understand food and, most importantly, automate the understanding of the portion size using only the camera on your phone and their thumbs. Piccabi, a tool that, no matter what you are eating, allows you to snap a picture of your food and straight away know the quantity of the food and its micro-nutrients in the dish…. This is Piccabi’s mission.

To improve people's health in one click.

“Our mission is to develop new technologies to assist those with the need and desire to live a better life. In addition, our tools will help to collect much-needed data for organisations to improve the quality of the foods that are placed onto the market. We are Piccabi!”

Piccabi in a nutshell


Piccabi is made up of scientists, technologists and general all-round good people. We see a world where the balance of technology and healthy living is tipped in humanity’s favour.


We have developed complex algorithms to understand food portioning with the use of a photo and your thumb or another object that can be used as reference, such as a spoon.


We have developed this for people’s health benefit, especially for those with underlying dietary-related conditions who must be notified of foods with ingredients that could harm their health.


Along with this, you are contributing to how companies will develop foods… Do you want more healthy and appropriate foods on the market by the brands you love?
