Europeana Food and Drink Classification

"The Europeana Food and Drink Classification scheme (EFD classification) is a multi-dimensional scheme for discovering and classifying Cultural Heritage Objects (CHO) related to Food and Drink (FD). To support the broadest possible range of re-use models, we are building upon existing terminologies to develop and apply a multilingual taxonomy for FD collections which will be used to tag, discover and aggregate relevant material by theme."
