Additional Information

Pinto (https://pinto.co) is a smarter product database and product intelligence platform, with a mission of making product data more optimized, searchable and personalized for today's consumers.

We provide food, grocery, and CPG companies with the deep product data needed to relay the richest and most relevant information to their customers, fully personalize and understand their inventories across today’s nuanced consumer preferences, and power key data initiatives across their business. 

No product database is smarter or more complete.

At Pinto, we believe consumers should be able to easily find products according to their individual needs, and our proprietary 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), rising health conditions (like Diabetes Management, Heart Health, etc.), certifications, sustainability preferences, nutrition preferences and goals, ingredient preferences and so much more. 

The era of personalization is here and we’ve built Pinto to power it 🍓📊
