We're Rolling Out a New Nutrition Rating System in All of Our Stores!

Today is a big day for our Living Well initiative! As part of our commitment to our guests’ health and wellness, we’re proud to partner with NuVal and start the roll-out of the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System throughout the aisles of all of our stores including United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos United. We’re especially excited because this means we’re the first grocery chain in Texas to take advantage of the scoring system!

The NuVal system is an easy-to-use nutritional information system that provides you with one simple number between one and 100. As the score gets higher, so does the product’s nutrient value! The thing that really sets this method apart from other rating systems is how the ratings were developed. Everything was developed independently by a team of nutrition and medical experts without influence from retailers or manufacturers!

Right now, you can take advantage of the nutritional scoring system in our Market Street Colleyville and Frisco locations, but keep an eye on the blog and the news as we continue to roll out the system in a store near you! We’re planning on having all of our stores across Texas outfitted with the new system by the end of the year and the DFW market complete in the next month!

If you’re at the Frisco or Colleyville store soon, let us know how you like the scoring system and if/how it impacts your shopping decisions. We’re always looking for new ways to provide our guests with easy and reliable ways to determine the most nutritious items in our stores, and we love to hear from you about what’s working and what we could be doing better.
