“Since 2006, we’ve worked hard and succeeded in leading the healthy vending industry in not only developing and showcasing a healthy snacking machine, but also in spreading a healthy lifestyle across the nation and beyond,” said Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc. Founder and VP of Corporate Operations Nick Yates. “Fresh Healthy Vending Touch is ‘Vending 2.0’ with modern technology appealing to and engaging with the customer like never before.

Each product in the machine has its own packaging design, 3D spin features, “buy me” animations and a detailed list of ingredients and product availability information. The fully customizable sidebar further breaks down each product into customizable categories, such as: Low Fat, Low Sugar, Low Sodium, Soy Free, Gluten Free, Kosher and Diabetic Friendly.
The state-of-the-art machines also feature anonymous facial recognition which allows the machines to capture sales patterns and trends through an understanding of the customers and purchasing histories. The Fresh Healthy Vending Touch machines accept cash, credit cards or NFC payments made on iPhones and Androids through Google Wallet.
“Healthy foods are becoming more prevalent in schools, workplaces and public and private facilities all over the world,” noted Yates. “This machine also allows us the ability to educate the consumer on the benefits of health and wellness at the point of purchase, something that has never been achieved and something product manufacturers are very excited about.”
