ACS: Scottish Proposals to Restrict Product Location in Stores ‘Not Practical for Small Shops’

ACS (the Association of Convenience Stores) has responded to the Scottish Government’s consultation on reducing harms from high fat, salt and sugar (HFSS) products, raising concerns about proposals to restrict the location of confectionery, biscuits, crisps and other products can be sold
The consultation proposes a range of measures to restrict the ways that HFSS products can be sold, including restrictions on:
          ** Multibuys
          ** Sale of unlimited amounts for a fixed charge
          ** Free samples
          ** Upselling
          ** In store advertising
          ** Shelf edge displays and signage
          ** Placement at checkouts, end of aisle, front of store, island/bin displays and other areas
