“With a specialist vending division, Autobar have developed a range of vending machines to encourage healthy eating within the schools and colleges sector throughout the UK”
Autobar Vending Services Limited, the leading supplier of high quality vending machines and vending supplies in the UK, has come with a specialised division that is completely dedicated to the education sector, and currently trades with over 300 universities, schools and colleges throughout the UK.
Following guidelines laid out by the Children’s Food Trust (formerly known as School Food Trust), Autobar has developed a range of vending machines that will encourage healthy eating in teens and young adults within the schools and colleges sector. Autobar now has over 300 product lines that are nutritionally healthy and 150 product lines that are approved for use in schools.
“At Autobar we have extensive knowledge of the Educational sector and understand exactly what staff and students want from their vending experience. With the vending industry constantly evolving we’ve seen many changes that highlight just how important it is to stay relevant and on top of current trends such as quality of product and innovation”, commented the Public Sector Director of Autobar.
According to a research conducted by Children’s Food Trust to study the link between child nutrition and health revealed that long queuing times and the lack of access to their preferred types of foods are the main reasons given by secondary school pupils for leaving the school premises at lunchtime. By carefully placing healthy food and drinks vending machines in school and college premises, Autobar attempts to make healthy food and drinks a regular component of students’ diet all over the UK.
“We’ve seen that the snacks and cold drinks offered are now much healthier due to changes in consumer attitudes and lifestyles. This demographic are majorly early adopters of innovative technologies such as contactless payment systems, and that’s why we work closely within the sector making sure we offer the very best in latest technologies”, stated a spokesperson from Autobar.
Apart from serving the needs of staff and students, the range of healthy vending machines by Autobar increase revenue, encourage children to stay on the premises, and offer product variety to cater for both students and staff.
The healthy vending machines by Autobar will include hot drinks vending systems, chilled drinks vending systems and food vending machines. These machines will dispense a range of delicious coffees and hot drinks, fruit juices, smoothies and flavoured milks and fresh fruit, sandwiches and cereal bars respectively.
