7-Eleven Canada to give consumers more nutrition information; Boosts the Informed Dining program by 600 locations

2017-10-16

The Informed Dining program builds on 7- Eleven Canada's nutrition transparency program. In the fall of 2016, 7-Eleven began voluntarily posting calorie labels nationwide on non-packaged foods and beverages – one of the first quick service restaurants in Canada to do so. In 2015, 7-Eleven Canada rolled out its "Better Choices" healthier options program, which expanded its assortment of healthier products and provided customers nutrient data for non- packaged foods and beverages.

"As a founding stakeholder of Informed Dining, Restaurants Canada is pleased to welcome our national member 7-Eleven Canada to the program," said Mark von Schellwitz, VP Western Canada, Restaurants Canada. "7-Eleven's pivot from traditional convenience store to a robust food service provider illuminates the rapid change in the restaurant industry. Their leadership to participate in Informed Dining ensures their customers have access to nutrition information for the entire range of food and beverages they offer."

7-Eleven now ranks 11 th  in foodservice sales in Canada. The foodservice retailer offers a wide product assortment that includes daily delivery of fresh food, hot food programs, in-store bakery, fresh produce, as well as self-serve coffee and cold-dispensed beverages. Ready-2- go options like fresh vegetables, salads, fruit cups, bottled water and single-serve fruits are gaining traction among customers seeking healthier options. In fact, 7-Eleven sells more than 4,100 bananas daily across Canada. For more information, please visit 7eleven.ca.
