Healthy Retail


Grocery stores provide more than 60% of Americans’ calories. While grocery stores sell a variety of healthy food, unhealthy food and beverages dominate checkout, ends of aisles, and entrance displays.

Food and beverage manufacturers pay retailers trade promotion fees to influence stores’ layout, product mix, and displays. The result is that unhealthy products are prominent, prevalent, and priced to move.

Instead, imagine finding fresh and healthy options placed and promoted throughout stores. The resources below can help you improve the food and beverage options in stores in your community.
