Dedicated to offering the best for its gifted students and staff members, Stanford University will soon be equipped with new, 'cutting edge', vending
machines, which are geared towards natural and organic products.
SAN DIEGO, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Based out of Solana Beach, Ca, YoNaturals Inc. was launched in August of 2007 as the first healthy vending company of its kind. They have been committed, from the start, to providing its customers with alternatives to the 'junk food' that is typically found in today's vending machines. Mark Trotter, CEO of YoNaturals explains that, "Our machines are stocked with great-tasting yet nutritious snacks and beverages such as Stacy's Pita Chips, Clif Bars, Pirate's Booty, Fiji water, Vitamin Water, Horizon organic milk, and Function Drinks. All of these products have been specially selected to ensure natural and organic ingredients and most importantly taste." "For once, vending machines can be associated with a leading movement in consumer health and wellness," he adds.
With an exceedingly successful 2007 behind them, YoNaturals has propelled its awareness to new levels among schools, businesses, investors, and the consuming public. Cynthia Savage, Director of Location Development at YoNaturals, explains that, "Stanford chose YoNaturals because, being a premier educational institution, they understand the benefits of having healthier snacking options for their students and faculty." She adds, "The products found in the 'YoZone' vending machines have no genetically modified ingredients, no partially hydrogenated oils, no unhealthy sugars, no dyes or preservatives. This is the wave of the future in food and in vending. YoNaturals is not 'big-beverage', nor do we intend to be, we just want people to have truly healthier choices."
The arrangement between Stanford and YoNaturals involves providing the University with multiple 'YoZone' vending machines through YoNaturals' exclusive area distributor, Natural Now LLC of Portola Valley, Ca. The machines will be placed in various buildings throughout the campus, and as an added perk, the departments selected to house these machines will be allotted a portion of their machines sales profits. Additionally, Natural Now LLC will be donating a portion of their profits to the ShineOn.org Foundation which provides educational scholarships to high school students affected by AIDS in Africa. Tracy Sherman and Steve Friedman, managing partners of Natural Now LLC, are the founders of ShineOn.org and are responsible for the donations provided to this commendable cause.
The 'YoZone' vending machines, which will soon be found around campus, are state-of-the-art, and designed with ultimate convenience in mind for both the customers and operators. They feature 24/7 remote monitoring, cashless payment systems for debit or credit cards, and are temperature controlled to service both fresh food and drinks simultaneously. The healthy and organic products sold at each location are specially selected from a list of nearly 300 items.
