Grocery store tour comes to Malaysia

With so many products in the supermarket, choosing the right product that is healthy can be a challenge. Marketers have come up with the concept of grocery store tour. A registered dietitian will walk the aisles of a local supermarket teaching you how to select healthy foods. The goal for most programs is helping consumers to the get the most nutrition for their food dollars. Eating healthy does not have to be expensive.

Such program is becoming common in developed markets. Here is an example of a course run by A Little Nutrition in Canada’s Winnipeg. A Little Nutrition uses real food to manage weight and wellness.

Here in Malaysia, grocery store tour remains something of a novelty. DailyMuscle, which offers group personal training classes and outdoor bootcamp with outlets in Glomac Damansara and Bangsar, is organising a Grocery Store Tour at Ben’s Independent Grocer at Glo Damansara on 11 February 2017. You can register here. Participation in the first round of the tour is free.

What Mini Me thinks
Grocery store tour is a win-win for all. For ordinary consumers, they now get the chance to receive expert advise on what food to buy and avoid to maintain a healthy lifestyle. For grocery store owners, it the opportunity to demonstrate how their store can cater to the needs of health-conscious consumers by highlighting the wide selection of healthy foods offered. For fitness/wellness service providers, it reinforces their expertise as authority in the field and provides a value-added offering to customers.
