Canadian Healthy Vending Announces A Major Expansion Of The Nutritional Information Available To Max Machine Users

Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

Canadian Healthy Vending announces an expansion of their Max Menu program which allows users at vending machines to view products and educate themselves about the ingredients and nutritional content of products. Every machine is registered in the program and consumers are able to search for items that meet their tastes and nutritional requirements online. When they have decided on which items they would like to see stocked in their vending machine, they can request the items directly from that machine’s operator.

The Max machine, with its high resolution 15 inch monitor and the Max Menu program, solves a problem that has limited the responsiveness of vending machine operators to consumer’s changing demands. As health consciousness and tastes have changed, users have discovered that the choices offered at vending machines have not evolved with them. Consumers who increasingly rely on nutritional labels to choose the food they eat, discover that this tool is largely unavailable to them. Although nutritional labelling is required on all products, that information is inaccessible behind the closed door of a vending machine. Recent research shows that up to 70% of Canadian consumers consider food labels an important source of nutritional information with nearly 60% of consumers reporting they always or usually read the labels on product according to Health Canada. Every Canadian Healthy Vending machine's monitor presents nutrition facts for items sold in the machine as well as useful information about eating a healthy diet.

“It has always been easier for a vending route operator to offer the same limited selection of popular brand products,” said Edward Thompson, Vice President of Canadian Healthy Vending. “Unlike the traditional vending industry, the healthy snack product segment is not dominated by a few large brands. You have to have a way to introduce those products to a larger audience. Consumers demand choice and they demand the nutritional facts about those products. The Max Menu system is our answer to the challenge of providing that information to vending machine customers. It allows us to interact with our customers and let their feedback shape our product selection."

Over the next several months, Canadian Healthy Vending plans to put bilingual healthy facts labelling online for the majority of their popular items. This is no easy feat, as there are over 1000 healthy products that operators can draw on to fill their machines. Armed with the nutritional facts, consumers can use tools like the Health Canada’s % Daily Value and other Interactive tools to compare and choose the right products and help to place their daily snacking in context with their nutritional goals.

Canadian Healthy Vending plans to further develop interactive features that make the vending machine an informative and friendly aide to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and not a barrier to nutritious eating.
