Urge Supermarkets to Remove Junk Food from Checkout



Checkout IsleIt’s no accident that nearly all supermarkets in America sell candy and soda in their checkout lanes.

Placing 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.
