Food Lion earns Better Health honors
Food Lion has earned Produce for Better Health Foundation’s (PBH) Supermarket Retail Role Model honors for its support of the “Fruits & Veggies ó More Matters” national public health initiative.
The company was formally recognized for this honor during the foundation’s annual board of trustees meeting April 3.
Food Lion, based in Salisbury, was one of only four grocery chains recognized nationwide, and the only chain with headquarters in the Southeast.
“Throughout 2008, Food Lion exhibited a true commitment of support to Fruits and Veggies ó More Matters and to distributing the message that everyone should be eating more fruits and vegetables for their better health,” said Dr. Elizabeth Pivonka, president and chief executive officer of PBH, the nonprofit entity behind the program.
“We’re extremely proud and appreciative of the efforts contributed by Food Lion to spread the word that increasing fruit and vegetable consumption is important to good nutrition.”
PBH selected Food Lion from the more than 60 licensed PBH retail member companies because of its efforts and commitment to promote the Fruits & Veggies ó More Matters brand and increase the fruit and vegetable consumption of their customers.
“Participating in the PBH Fruits & Veggies ó More Matters initiative is important to Food Lion,” said Gaines Chamberlain, Food Lion’s produce merchandising manager. “Food Lion wants to provide healthy and nutritious meal solutions for our customers.
“Our focus on health and wellness, for example, includes providing more nutritional educational materials and offering our Guiding Stars in-store nutritional navigation system, which is a simple and convenient way our customers can make nutritional product selections. We’re honored PBH has recognized us for our efforts.”
Food Lion strengthened its marketing efforts to better promote healthy eating of fruits and vegetables and, for example, included the PBH information on its Web site’s Kid’s Section.
“Food Lion has taken great strides to revamp our program to provide our customers with a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to meet the ever-growing need for more nutritional offerings,” said Jim Corby, Food Lion’s vice president of produce merchandising.
“Food Lion offers customers many ideas for easy-to-fix, inexpensive, meal solutions that incorporate plenty of healthy fruits and vegetables in weekly ad circulars, on the web site at www.foodlion.com and in the store.”
The Fruits & Veggies ó More Matters Web site is www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org.
The Web site also features a new Video Center that outlines proper storage methods and demonstrates healthy, fast recipe preparation step by step. It offers other fun and useful tidbits of produce information and makes adding more fruits and vegetables to meals and snacks easy and delicious.
