Using a Novel Online Grocery Platform to Explore How Front-Of-Package Labeling Affects Consumers’ Food Choice

Do consumers make healthier food choices when products have front-of-package (FOP) labels? The literature is currently mixed. We use a new research toola large, open-source online grocery store---to examine FOP labels. Consumers who saw (vs. did not see) FOP labels bought more produce and purchased more healthy items.
