Since its inception in 2003, ComBase has been a free public resource. We want to ensure that it remains the world’s largest database that helps the food community keep our food safe and wholesome.

Behind the scenes, your ComBase team identifies new published data, communicates with data authors, and then formats the information so that it is quickly integrated into ComBase. In addition, we provide support to anyone who needs extra assistance to use ComBase tools.

Please take a minute to donate what you can, by clicking one of the payment options in this link. From there, you’ll be directed to a secure payment portal.

Your support will keep ComBase a valuable resource for years to come.

Thank you for your generous contribution!
