Impact AreasTransforming the marketplace
We’re leveraging the vending machine industry to bring people around the clock better-for-you options.
There are nearly five million vending machines serving snacks and beverages every day, 24/7, across this country. Vending is an around-the-clock food delivery system and, machines operate everywhere consumers work, play, and live. Consumers are demanding healthier options from their vending machines, and PHA is responding to that need.
PHA has partnered with NAMA, the member association representing the $25 billion US convenience service industry, to substantially increase the percentage of ‘better-for-you’ offerings in the nation’s vending machines to 33%. The commitment, implemented over the next three years, represents a nearly 40% increase over current levels of ‘better for you’ offerings — those that meet at least two recognized public health standards.
Consumers demand healthier choices. By working with the convenience service industry, PHA will help to meet this growing demand where consumers are.
One of the benefits of vending is that it is an around-the-clock, there for you all the time delivery system.
