In-store calorie data helping Canadians make informed purchasing decisions

(Vancouver, B.C.) – Busy Canadians who are looking for healthier options on-the-go can now benefit from improved calorie labeling in 7‑Eleven® stores across Canada. Calorie counts are now on price tags and menu boards for non-packaged food and beverage products, including hot and cold beverages, crispy chicken, hot foods, and fresh bakery products.

 

7‑Eleven Canada was quick off the mark voluntarily posting calorie labels nation-wide on September 1, 2016. The introduction of Canada-wide calorie labels coincides with the lead-up to Ontario’s new menu labelling requirements in the New Year. 7‑Eleven Canada chose to move with early implementation and extend this nutritional information to its customers across the country.

 

“7‑Eleven Canada is committed to providing our customers with the information they need to make more informed choices,” says Raj Kapoor, vice president and general manager, 7‑Eleven Canada. “We’re proud to take a leadership role to be among the first retailers to implement calorie menu labeling in Canada.”

 

7‑Eleven Canada has gone above and beyond Ontario’s menu labeling regulations, having also posted a Nutrition Quick Reference Guide in stores to provide customers with comprehensive information on calories and 13 core nutrients for over 300 food and beverage entries.
