With supermarkets accounting for the majority of food spending in Australia, marketing techniques in the supermarket environment have the potential to improve the healthiness of consumer food purchases at a population level.

However, to date, there is limited evidence of the real world feasibility and impact of interventions designed to create supermarket environments that encourage healthy food purchases.

A partnership between IGA, The City of Greater Bendigo, Deakin University and VicHealth was formed to test a range of low-cost, scalable changes to supermarket store environments aimed to increase healthy purchasing.

Eat Well @ IGA is a world first, award-winning program to encourage healthy eating by using innovative nudges throughout the supermarket.

The project is a partnership between IGA, The City of Greater Bendigo, Deakin University and VicHealth.

Following pilot testing of a number of low-cost and simple interventions over the past two years, we are now running a scientific trial (randomised controlled trial)  to test whether these simple nudges lead to healthier purchasing.
