Food Facts

Emily

Some exciting new things are happening at our stores! March is National Nutrition Month, which made it the perfect time to announce our new nutritional attribute program that you will now be able to find on your favorite grocery shelf tags. This new program is called Food Facts, a program that will better assist you in making more informed and nutritious grocery decisions when our team of dietitians aren’t in the aisles with you (we wish we could be everywhere at once!).

This new program is an addition to the Dietitian’s Choice program we launched last fall. As seen below, this new program will allow specific attributes (or characteristics) to be displayed on our shelf tags, with a total of 6 potential attributes to be chosen from. Because there is only room for 3 attributes at a time on our shelf tags (due to space), we have created a hierarchy in which these attributes are listed based on what we feel YOU, our guest would want to know. Don’t worry–Dietitian’s Choice is always first on the list to help you make more nutritious decisions!

  • Dietitian’s Choice
  • Organic
  • Gluten Free
  • Low Sodium
  • Whole Grain
  • Heart Healthy

You will now see several thousand items in your favorite Coborn’s, Cash Wise and Marketplace Foods locations that have this new shelf tag. We would love to hear how our new Food Facts program is helping you make more informed food choices!

Healthy and Happy Eating,

My career in Natural Foods is something that I happily, however accidentally, fell into, but the trend has been a part of my lifestyle for a little over 10 years. Starting in high school I decided the treatment of animals was important to me and quickly adapted to a vegan food diet. For some, a diet like this which ignores all meats (yes, this includes chicken AND fish), all dairy products, eggs, gelatin and for some, honey, sounds difficult to adhere to, and let me tell you 10-15 years ago it wasn’t easy finding a simple vegan meal in a grocery store and the big food holidays required a lot of creativity.  In the last 5 years, the vegan food trend has blown up and plant-based foods have become as common as ice in a freezer.
