The Resources Interest Group (previously the Healthy Food Retail Action Team) have developed a toolkit to support food retailers to adapt their practices to support customers with healthier purchase decisions.
The Toolkit is a step-by-step guide that includes ideas and tried and tested processes that transition the retail environment in a financially sustainable way. The intended audience of the toolkit is small- to medium-sized food retail cafes in Victoria, with a focus on those located within hospital and health services, universities and sports and recreation centres.
The Toolkit was ‘tested’ with a diverse cohort of food retailers via research funded by the Victorian Department of Health. The final iteration of the Toolkit was informed by and adjusted to reflect this feedback. The Toolkit is currently being transformed by a graphic designer, and we hope to launch it in early 2023.
