“As Harold Levinson Associates (HLA) approaches our second year as a PHA partner, we are not looking back on what we accomplished, but looking forward to what we are doing now and for tomorrow. HLA is the premier full line c-store distributor in the Northeast supplying over 7000 independent retailers, we are actively helping our customers transition their offerings to attract more customers that are interested in eating healthier.
In addition to our fresh cut fruit, we have added whole apples, oranges and bananas to our “Grab N Go” offerings. Our “Grab N Go” cooler planograms include many PHA approved products such as hard boiled eggs, yogurts, bottled water and seltzer/club soda. We have also added many new and innovative products to the healthier snacking category, including our Uncle Ed’s Pantry snacks that have 5 PHA approved sku’s. Our Healthy Snack Multi-Vendor End-Cap display is in hundreds of locations and continues to have many new PHA approved items added to it.
Our university customers have embraced our commitment to supply healthier for you snacks and we continue to add new college accounts each year. We are also committed to PHA’s Drink Up campaign to encourage consumers and our customers to drink more water. At HLA trade shows, we have water coolers and Drink Up signage set up throughout the trade show floor.
At HLA, our resources are our 650+ associates and we are working hard to expand our health and wellness offerings to them, including discounted gym memberships, volleyball and walking clubs, and bringing the Drink Up campaign into our warehouses and offices.”
