Score yourself

Convenience stores

Scottish Grocers Federation’s Healthy Living Programme is supporting convenience stores across Scotland to sell more fruit and veg.  They have an excellent toolkit to guide convenience store owners to achieve the Gold Standard achieving excellence in healthier options.

The accompanying produce guide also provides excellent material for store owners.

In 2016, the USA’s National Association of Convenience Stores launched a new toolkit titled, “Ideas That Work to Grow Better-for-You Sales,” and they include evidence-based tactics to try.


The Food and Brand Lab (part of Cornell University in the USA) have developed a retailer self-assessment score card which you can use to score your own retail environment.
