Join the research activities with the My Flavoria® app
As Flavoria’s customer you can participate in various scientific studies with the My Flavoria® app. When you use the app, the scales embedded in the lunch line and in the bio-waste station collect data about your lunch choices and bio-waste you generate. By registering your lunch in the app, you can keep track of the nutritional values of your lunch portions and participate in producing scientific data. The app is currently available only in Finnish.
Here’s how it works
- Download the My Flavoria® application to your phone.
- Take food from the Flavoria® lunch line one scale at the time following the instruction on the screen.*
- When paying for your meal, scan My Flavoria® QR code from the application. This way, you will have your lunch information transferred to the application.
- If you chose to take drinks or additions, such as bread or salad dressing, you can add them manually in the app (Ruokailut > Lisukkeet).
- After you have eaten, sort possible bio-waste to the bio-waste container, and provide feedback regarding your food experience with a smiley face.
*Please remember that it’s a scale system. Avoid adding any extra weight on the scale while weighing your lunch, or it will affect the weight result and nutritional content information of your meal.
More information about the research activities
The University of Turku leads the research activities in Flavoria®, and Sodexo Oy is responsible for the practical restaurant activities. Your personal data is pseudonymized before using it in the research, which means that personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person. If you do not use the My Flavoria® app, neither your food choice data nor the produced bio-waste can be connected to you.
The research data and new consumer understanding collected in Flavoria are used to develop the society and businesses by creating new solutions and innovations related to e.g. food, eating, and multi-sensory experiences.
