Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Healthy Membership Program?
The Healthy Membership Program is an employee perk that gives employees increased purchasing power when buying fresh products and items with A/B Nutri-Score in each of the almost 800 Delhaize points of sale across Belgium. It is the result of a collaboration between Unbox and Delhaize who share the goal of making it easier and more affordable for people to eat more balanced.
Why do my employees need to be part of the Healthy Membership Program?
The Healthy Membership Program gives your employees the nudge they need to switch to healthy habits without having to sacrifice their wallet. Moreover, it falls in line with our belief that access to balanced and affordable food should be a basic human right.
How is it different from meal vouchers?
The Healthy Membership Program:
is easy to use: the user only has to register for SuperPlus
has no conditions on eligibility: no limits because of illness, holiday, weekends...
can only be used to buy healthy foods
is created to change behaviour
can be combined with the classic meal vouchers
costs only 5 euros excluding vat per employee per month versus an average cost of 6 euros per meal voucher per employee per working day
How much does it cost me?
The Healthy Membership Program costs 5 euro excluding vat per month per employee. Employees participating in the Healthy Membership Program get a 20% discount on products with A/B Nutri-Score in each of the almost 800 Delhaize points of sale across Belgium, with a maximum discount of 60 euros per month! In short: the Healthy Membership Program turns 12 x 5 euro per month into potentially 720 euros additional healthy purchasing power!
What kind of set up and maintenance do I have to do to run this for my employees?
What if my some of my employees do not live near a Delhaize?
Healthy Membership Program only works at the Delhaize stores across Belgium!
Will you help with communications and onboarding for my employees?
Yes, we are there to support your internal communications and employee onboarding. All you must do is sign the contract.
Is the membership digital or is there a physical card?
The Healthy Membership Program is a fully digital product with no physical card. However, it is linked to Delhaize’s SuperPlus program and can thus also be used with the SuperPlus card.
If one of my employees leaves the company when does their membership end?
Their membership ends at the end of the contract. For example, if your employee leaves in the middle of the 12 month period, the employee can benefit from the Healthy Membership Program for the remaining 6 months.
How successful has the Healthy Membership Program been in the past in terms of employee satisfaction and behavioural change?
The predecessor of the Healthy Membership Program - the Healthy Ucoins 1.0 - has been very successful. Participants consistently purchased more Nutri-Score A/B products, and 1 out of 3 users changed their habits to a healthier diet. Also checkout www.ucoin.be.
Can I start the program at any given date or are there fixed start dates?
The program always starts at the beginning of a month. Beyond that, start dates can be chosen for any month of the year.
Do you have similar products in other domains I can offer as well?
What is the (para)fiscal status of Healthy Membership Program?
The Healthy Membership Program benefits from a government ruling covering the three areas below:
social security: no contributions
employee tax: non taxable benefit
corporate tax: fully deductible
Why does it only work at Delhaize?
In September 2018, Delhaize introduced the Nutri-Score nutrition label in its stores, which makes it easier for people to make more balanced food choices. Delhaize is the first company in Europe to increase the purchasing power for nutritious products and thus the only retailer that offers Healthy Membership Program now.
What does it cost my employees?
The Healthy Membership Program is completely free for employees. Most importantly, the Healthy Membership Program is not a benefit in kind.
