Promote Produce for National Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month®, an annual informational campaign presented by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. It is aimed at encouraging healthy eating patterns in our daily lives. In addition to promoting sound eating habits, the campaign offers grocers and other retailers an opportunity to showcase and promote seasonal produce.

With some skillful produce merchandising, colorful, eye-catching displays of nutritious fruits and vegetables will likely increase sales as well as encourage your customers’ healthy eating habits. FFR Merchandising has numerous solutions for both displaying the finest produce of the season as well as opportunities to help consumers select just the right items to create a healthy meal.

Display a wide variety of loose and packaged green leafy, cruciferous and root vegetables, as well as fruits with one of our two new shelving systems: Fresh-Fit™ Thin Profile Shelving System and Fresh-Fit™ Vertical Produce Shelving. These systems provide visual interest and maximize space by allowing multiple case configurations while accommodating a wide variety of product shapes and sizes. Unique angled designs promote first-in first-out rotation to ensure produce remains fresh and easily accessible.

Customers may be aware of a produce item’s nutritional importance but not how to prepare it, and they appreciate being presented with complementary items for specific recipes without having to search the store. Our new Metal Cross Merchandiser can be added to bulk bins and tables to provide easy access to items such as spice and flavor mixes, herbs, dips, dressings, prep tools and more.

FFR Merchandising has additional produce merchandising display items that are also effective selling tools for any grocery environment. To learn more about these or any of our other FFR retail solutions, please call (800) 422-2547 between 8 am and 6 pm EST for more information.
