Supermarkets to Remove Junk Food from Checkout
It’s no accident that nearly all
supermarkets in America sell candy and soda in their checkout lanes.
junk food near the cash register is a marketing strategy that supermarkets use to
boost sales. Not only do
supermarkets benefit from the sale of junk food at checkout, but they’ve found
a way to make even more money by “renting” out space in their checkout aisles
to food companies that pay to have their products there.
Supermarkets should support shoppers’
health, not undermine it. Join us in asking Walmart, Kroger, and other major
supermarkets to do right by their customers and remove junk food from checkout.
