QUINCY, Mass. — NuVal here is planning to launch an informational label that will be posted alongside its nutrition scores on store shelves, and is asking consumers to propose a name for the label.
Nuval’s widely used scoring system, which rank foods on a scale of 1-100 based on overall nutrition, is employed by such chains as United Supermarkets, King Kullen, Price Chopper, Raley’s, Giant Eagle and K-VA-T, among others. The new labels will say whether foods are gluten-free, organic, or a good source of fiber or protein, among other claims, in order to “help those with specific health conditions or dietary restrictions, who may need a little more information while grocery shopping,” NuVal said on its Facebook page.

The Facebook post said that until Aug. 8, NuVal is asking all consumers, including those who may not be near a participating NuVal retailer, to propose a name for the new label. The consumer who submits the winning name will receive a $250 Visa Gift Card. Name submissions can be emailed to [email protected] with the subject line “NuVal Attribute Program.”
