The researchers from the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, and supported by the NIHR CLAHRC and NIHR Oxford BRC, analysed data from 35 studies, including more than 20,000 customers and over 800 stores. The majority of studies tested the effect of interventions in typical, large supermarkets, with a smaller number involving convenience shops or online stores.
