About Us

Pinto (https://pinto.co) is the world's smartest product database and product intelligence platform.

We provide food, grocery, and CPG companies with the complete product data needed to relay rich and relevant information to their customers, personalize their inventories across today’s consumer needs, and power their entire business. No product database is smarter or more complete.

At Pinto, we believe consumers should be able to easily navigate products according to their individual needs, and our data platform is solving this by digitizing and classifying the world of products across every personalized consumer preference — from every allergen and intolerance to key lifestyles and diets (like Vegan, Paleo, Keto, Gluten Free), health conditions (like Diabetes Management, Heart Health, etc.), certifications, sustainability preferences, nutrition preferences and goals, ingredient preferences and so much more.
