1. Scores Classic- This option provides grocers with the full complement of NuVal’s scores. NuVal has scored over 100,000+ products across all grocery categories to date. Each month more and more products get scored and participating grocers are provided new item files to update their shelf tags.

2. Scores Core- Just like the Classic option only more condensed. The Core option eliminates products like brownie mix and cheese dip, delicious yes, but we already know they aren’t healthy. Instead Core focuses on select categories and branded top sellers.

3. Attributes- The Attribute option allows grocers the ability to print easy to spot and identify icons on shelf bib tags. The icons call out a products…wait for it…Nutritional Attributes, such as “Low Sodium” or “Gluten Free”.
