WHITEFISH BAY, WI
Sendik’s Food Markets is joining the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Nutritional Sciences Program to provide its shoppers with nutritional data on select prepared deli items.
The retailer is donating food labeling and nutrient analysis software to the university’s registered dietitians to provide analyses on deli items labeled with a green checkmark. Shoppers can either scan the item’s QR code located on a brochure, or they can visit Sendik’s website to see the data, according to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
“At UWM, part of our mission is promoting the health and wellness of the community,” said Chukuka S. Enwemeka, Distinguished Professor and Dean of the College of Health Sciences. “This collaboration also provides access to a real-world food retail environment for our Nutritional Sciences students.”
The nutritional information is available at Sendik’s stores in Elm Grove, Franklin, New Berlin, Wauwatosa, West Bend, and White Fish Bay, as well as Sendik’s Fresh2GO store in Bayside. A Hartland store will open later this year.
