- From February to June 2014, an intervention has been conducted in 2 supermarkets located in a disadvantaged neighborhood in Marseille (France). Inexpensive foods with good nutritional quality were shelf-labeled as MANGER TOP (“eating great”), accompanied by an in-store marketing and communication materials: leaflets, posters, prime placement, taste-testing booth. Analysis of member-customers purchases showed a positive effect of the intervention on the purchases of MANGER TOP fruits and vegetables and starches. An exit surveys showed that 31 % of customers had seen the MANGER TOP materials, and this percentage increases significantly at the end of the intervention. An in-depth survey showed that customers who had seen the MANGER TOP materials scored significantly higher on quizzes assessing nutrition knowledge and had a better understanding of the labeling system, underscoring the differences of message receptivity in the target population.
