Banner Health Launches Major Healthy Food Initiative

Initial focus is on vending, but retail cafes and catering are next on the list.

Banner Health is undergoing a massive revamping of its retail dining and vending in order to promote health and wellness, reports the Arizona Republic. A new Healthy Options program is being introduced in Banner facilities in eight states. Initially, the initial focus is on vending, where 80 percent of choices will now be healthier, but the initiative is then slated to be introduced into cafeterias and catering. Last year, retail dining generated $23 million in revenue for Banner, a figure that will be closely monitored to gauge the impact of the changes, but Banner officials stress that there will be no retreat from the healthy food emphasis.
