Healthy Retail Solutions: In Store Marketing

CHBR, The Food Trust, and Temple University's Center for Obesity Research and Education are collaborating to conduct pilot tests in 8 grocery stores to evaluate the effect of in-store marketing strategies on product sales within four product categories. Stores will be randomly divided into control and intervention stores.

Project Goals:

  • Evaluate strategies to increase the sales of healthier items, in a profit-neutral or profit- generating manner, in supermarkets in low-income, ethnically diverse neighborhoods
  • Refine and pilot test the Grocery Marketing Environment Assessment, an observational tool to measure supermarket marketing environments
