Not long ago, vending machine options were limited to candy bars, sodas, potato chips and a handful of other snack foods. These products were convenient for eating on the go, but they weren’t particularly nutritious. These days, however, it’s not uncommon to see healthier options like salads and fresh fruit in vending machines as well.
In Chicago, for example, one startup called Farmer’s Fridge specializes in stocking vending machines with fresh, nutritious snacks and even full meals. The company’s goal, according to CEO Luke Sanders, is to “make fresh food more accessible than a candy bar.” This health-conscious business model has become so successful that Farmer’s Fridge is bringing its vending machines to Milwaukee, too.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, officials in Melbourne, Australia recently installed a new 24-hour vending machine that offers organic vegan options to the city’s residents. If the prototype vending machine is well received, Melbourne may install more of them in other high-traffic areas to make it easier for commuters to grab healthy snacks on their way to and from work.
