Shifting Retail Environments

2019 Progress Report

From warehouse to checkout, PHA’s distributor and convenience store partners are improving the supply chain so that better-for-you foods and beverages are available wherever people are.

Our convenience store partners have more than 2,500 locations across 39 states, and 75% of those locations are in food-scarce neighborhoods. These stores are not only increasing the accessibility of healthier items, they are also actively promoting their consumption through marketing, strategic placement throughout the store, and pricing that is competitive with less healthy alternatives.

NACS, the association representing the convenience store industry, has been a valued partner since 2017. At the 2019 PHA Summit, NACS was honored as the Partner of the Year, an award given to the partner that goes beyond the strategies outlined in its official commitment. NACS has proactively communicated to convenience store retailers the business case for offering healthier options at their stores. With more than 154,000 convenience stores across the nation, NACS gives the industry greater access, information, and resources to ensure that convenience stores across the nation are fully stocked with healthier options.
