You will spend around a third of your life at work on average. So the workplace is the perfect environment to spread the message for healthy eating strategies. The Micro Market conforms to demand for healthier eating by offering healthier items to encourage a nutritious working day, from freshly prepared pasta pots to low calorie food and drink.
Make it easy!
You’re more likely to encourage healthier eating if healthier items are easily accessible. The Micro Market stocks everything in an open design whereby you can check calorie and nutritional information prior to purchase, so you get more of an idea if a product is secretly hiding a high sugar or salt content.
The cost of an unhealthy workforce is expected to cost the taxpayer £60 billion a year, so it is important to have healthier items available to provide your workforce with a choice. In 2017, it was understood that just 29% of adults were eating the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. The Micro Market encourages higher consumption with tasty fruit bags, perfect for that mid-morning snack!
Make it tasty!
And if you do want something a little “more”, the Micro Market offers low sugar and low-calorie goodies. Not only are there high fibre and low sugar breakfast bars available, but we have also recently added items including “Cadbury Dairy Milk 30% less sugar.” This provides the same taste of regular Dairy Milk, just with less sugar! The original bar contained 56g of sugar per 100g, whilst the latest one contains just 39g.
According to research, a team of 20 scientists, nutritionists and chocolatiers worked tirelessly for three years at the firm’s Reading and Bourneville facilities to cut the sugar content without adding any artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives. If savoury is more your thing, we have a wide range of “light” crisps including Quavers and Popchips.
Additionally, many of our cold cans and bottles are either low or no sugar. These include Diet Coke, 7up Free and Vimto Light.
We said that the Micro Market had your entire working day covered and we meant it. Come dinner time, going healthy doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on taste and quality. Freshly prepared pasta pots, sandwiches and wraps will take the hunger away and are so delicious you’ll want to come back the next day.
Make it quick and simple!
All items are purchased through a cashless self-service terminal that prioritises speed and security. Only in June 2019 did research find that 1 in 10 adults in the UK now live a “cashless” lifestyle, and our Micro Market again conforms to demand. Unlike many other payment terminals, ours is bespoke to Express Refreshments which means we can make changes and improvements “on-the-fly”. This minimises downtime for you, the customer.
So, there you have it! The Micro Market really can encourage healthier eating with tasty and nutritious refreshments. It’s the perfect way to keep your workforce fed and watered if you have a high volume of staff. Micro Market customers are advised to keep checking the media screens in their market to stay up to date with new products and promotions.
