Deprived shops get fruit boost13th August 2008
A £200,000 pilot scheme has been launched in the North East to help corner shops to sell more fruit and vegetables to their customers.
The scheme is being tried out after a similar project in Scotland helped to boost sales by up to 500%. James Lowman, chief executive of the Association of Convenience Stores, added: "Working together we can bring not only the access, but also the messages about healthy choices to the consumers that need it most."
