Commits to make available key resources to its members to help determine how they can carry additional healthier choices, as well as provide promotional materials related to Drink Up, PHA’s marketing campaign to encourage water consumption. NACS also will provide healthier catering options at its events, including the NACS Show, one of the 40 largest trade shows in the United States.
“NACS was the first retail-focused association to sign a commitment with PHA and continues to innovate in finding new ways that advance our organizations’ similar goals beyond the structure of the three-year commitment. In less than one year, we have completed or are actively working to complete all commitment elements, including publishing member resources to promote water consumption, tools to help retailers select and merchandise better-for-you items and working with retail groups representing corner stores and bodegas.
NACS has celebrated PHA at the convenience store industry’s signature event and through other communications, helping lead other convenience store retailers to join PHA. Eight NACS retail members that collectively do business in 25 states, and five distributor members that serve 75,000 convenience store accounts, have signed commitments with PHA. More are expected to be announced in 2018 as we collectively strive to make the healthier choice the convenient choice.”
