Helping people get healthier,
one bite at a time.

Metabite delivers digital tools and services that help individuals and communities improve their dietary behavior.

What we do and why

Data, research and technology are key for gaining population health insights. Combining these elements intelligently allows us to understand what drives eating behavior both on an individual as well as a population level.

We deliver digital products that empower healthcare professionals to understand these factors in more detail than ever before. In partnership with them we are able to drive positive change in new ways, both on the individual and population levels.
