Marion Nestle researches and
publishes many works for healthy diet, food safety, and health related problems
linked to unhealthy eating habits. She has made many critically-acclaimed
research writings and books that has shed light on eating habits and the food
industry (Nestle, About). In one of her influential article titled What to Eat, supermarkets use tactics to
trick and manipulate the very consumers who give them business.  In the article, supermarkets make consumers
think they have free choice, but in reality, they don’t. Supermarkets keep
track of customers spending habits by the barcodes of items purchased. Supermarkets
use customer shopping habits to arrange the store to make items easier to grab
or push new products. Believe it or not, supermarkets go through great lengths
to make a profit. Not only do they spy on you, the “corporations were hiring
social scientist to study unconscious human emotions (Nestle, What). Nestle
goes on to explain that stores purposely put the basic and needed items in the
back of the store in order for customers to view the many other unneeded items on
the shelves. Supermarkets put popular items on the middle shelves and the aisles
that have the most customers going through. The main goal of supermarkets is to
keep consumers in the store as long as possible so that consumers buy their
products. Supermarkets place sale items around the store and make them hard to
find so customers stay and search for the items. The slow background music
distracts customers from their shopping goals. Bakery and deli sections in the
stores tempt customers with the delicious smell. Nestle explains that all of
these little distractions can lead to consumers impulse buying many unhealthy
and unneeded items. Nestle wrote this article in order to help people realize that
supermarkets manipulate and trick consumers. The author urges people to resist
the supermarkets temptations and keep to the shopping list made.
