Livewell and Healthy Vending for Schools

Livewell® are leading the way in offering modern vending stations with a wide range of healthy products.  We’re bringing the world of vending up to speed with the innovative pace of retail. We call it Vetail®. It’s less about vending and more about smart lifestyle choices.

And that’s why our ears pricked up when we heard Healthy Vending being discussed on Radio 4 earlier this week (listen here).  We were pleased to hear the Chief Executive of the AVA (Automatic Vending Association) have a national platform to promote a National Healthy Vending campaign to help improve the image of vending, particularly in school settings.

In the interview some common concerns raised by a head teacher regarding vending in schools echoed many discussions we have had with those working in education.  Often these include issues around giving young people free access to fizzy drinks and high-sugar snacks and also the commercial viability of vending in schools.

But things have changed!

We’ve been supplying vending to the secondary education sector for many years and work with each school to develop a specific and appropriate range of vended drinks and snacks.  Unlike traditional vending, our Livewell® Stations offer a broader range of products (including healthier options) that help meet the specific health and wellbeing needs of school sites.

Many people we speak to are unaware of the latest vending machine developments – our modern vending stations now offer touchscreen technology and nutritional information.  Livewell® Stations can be integrated with schools cashless catering systems (including biometrics) and access can be limited using timers to only allow students to purchase vended products at certain times of day (e.g. breaks).

Our experience also shows that vending can be extremely beneficial in terms of generating additional revenue for schools.

Talk to us today about our Healthy Station or vending within your school and how it can work for you. Contact Jo Watson, Sales and Marketing Co-ordinator on jo@livewellvending.co.uk or 01423 876352.
