As we celebrate our 10th anniversary this month, we’ve had stories and photos pouring in from many of Hannaford’s RDs as they share how they’ve used Guiding Stars and our 10th anniversary to inspire more nutritious choices among Hannaford’s customers.

We’re delighted to announce that 2016 marks the 10th anniversary of Guiding Stars!
Since our very beginning as a project at Hannaford in 2006, we’ve been delighted to bring our easy-to-use, science-grounded nutritional guidance program into a wider national market and even into Canada. Our algorithms have been awarded three independent patents and our program has been demonstrated as valuable for changing behavior in several independent studies. All of our success and growth has come from the enthusiastic support and advocacy of our partners, who are dedicated to making nutritious choices easier for the people they serve.
