Meet Foodzy: Gamification in health [Video Interview] #TNW2011

At last week’s The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam, Foodzy, a locally based startup won for “Most Remarkable Pitch. Foodzy helps keep track of what you eat during the day and rewards certain healthy or fun eating habits with badges. There’s also a social element to Foodzy, allowing users to discover new products that others you know like as well as which of them have eating habits that are similar.

The startup works with local food databases in every country so that products available in a user’s country are suggested in the service when searching for them. The hope is that users will continue to build upon the “master” database Foodzy has put in place and this crowdsourcing will enhance the user experience for everyone, not matter what country they live in.
