Children in elementary and middle school can enter cereal-box designs in a contest by H.E. Butt Grocery. Two grand-prize winners will get $5,000 for their school, and their artwork will appear on H-E-B Toasted Oats and H-E-B Honey Nut Toasted Oats.
U.K. supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and other food outlets will be graded based on hygiene inspections and asked to display the results on doors or windows. The new program, to be launched next year, will be supported by a consumer Web site.
DTV converter boxes will be available beginning April 1 at all H.E. Butt Grocery Co. stores, the San Antonio-based company said. H-E-B also plans to launch an "awareness initiative" in Texas about the DTV switch. NAB President-CEO David Rehr praised H-E-B's "shining example of public service. I applaud H-E-B for taking the lead among grocery retailers to educate consumers about this important transition to digital television," Rehr said.
