AGRIBALYSE agricultural and food database

AGRIBALYSE 3.0 is the French LCI database for the agriculture and food sector. The latest version, published in 2020, comprises LCIs for 2 500 agricultural and food products produced and/or consumed in France, combining a production-based approach and a consumption-based approach. Built upon previous datasets (versions 1.3 and 1.4) for French agricultural products, AGRIBALYSE 3.0 was developed by INRAE for agriculture datasets and by Gingko 21, Sayari and Blonk for food items value chains.

AGRIBALYSE uses a transparent methodology that was co-developed by an extensive partnership between public and private research institutes, coordinated by ADEME and INRAE. Methodology principles follow the key international guidelines as much as possible (ISO, LEAP, PEF). The development program is ongoing, and more updates will follow.
