NAMA Encourages Members To Leverage FitPick® To Help Consumers Identify Healthier Choices Jan 30, 2015 Source: NAMA
(CHICAGO) January 29, 2015 – A recent Technomic study that revealed 53% of consumers would be more likely to shop at c-stores if healthier choices were available.
While c-store chains — including 7-Eleven and Holiday Station stores — are offering fruits, vegetables, snack bars, yogurt and other healthy snack options, according to Donna Hood Crecca, senior director for Technomic, the consumer demand for those items continues to be a significant opportunity for vending and micro market operators.
“The time is now to ensure that our channel is helping meet this consumer demand. FitPick, NAMA’s signature nutrition program, is a low-cost, effective way to help consumers get what they want – healthier items,” according to Roni Moore, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, NAMA.
“Vending and micro market operators are perfectly positioned to leverage this trend to grow their businesses. FitPick is an effective way to identify “better for you” products directly to consumers,” she continued.
