COFFEE: THE NEW WEIGHT LOSS WEAPON?
At UKVending we’ve always thought that coffee is the new red wine. The ultimate drink of choice for the vast majority of people, after all coffee has 1,200 flavour compounds against red wines paltry 700! Then of course it’s also being touted as a weapon in the war against excess weight. How I hear […]
RED BUSES IN LONDON
The next time you venture into the big smoke for a daytrip or perhaps longer then try and take a smell of London. Don’t breathe in too deeply mind what with all the pollution and what have you; but in between all the toxic and noxious stuff that Londoners breathe every single day you […]
THE FUTURE OF CASHLESS PAYMENTS
The future is here - many sci-fi films assume this as a premise for a fantastic futuristic adventure. For UKVending the future is cashless payments and there are some amazing technological advancements that are just around the corner and not hidden in some galaxy far, far away. Now vending machines have been with us, in […]
TEA AND CRICKET
What could be more English than a game of cricket, a cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich? As the summer months roll on in glorious sunshine (we can only hope) it is once again to enjoy this quintessentially British pastime, after all try explaining the rules of cricket to an American or indeed why […]
CHOCOLATE AS A PILL?
Pills have usually been associated with those of us taking medication for complaints but how would you react if your doctor prescribed you a dose of chocolate pills? Well, this unlikely scenario could soon be coming to medical practices up and down the country because of cocoa’s well researched health benefits. In chocolate it has […]
CHAMPAGNE VENDING MACHINE
We sincerely hope that you never experience that moment of ‘What shall I have’ from one of UKVending’s vending machines and then decide there isn’t sufficient choice. We regularly visit our clients to restock all the compartments with drinks, crisps and chocolates; but one enterprising individual with big ideas had the idea to use […]
WORLD TEA EXPO
Usually what goes on in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas, but not so when it comes to the World Tea Expo which was staged there in June. With over 260 exhibitors from across the globe the exhibition highlighted the latest developments in the world of tea to nearly 4,000 delegates at the Las Vegas […]
MUSEUM OF FAILURE
Here at UKVending we are always pushing the boundaries of what is possible as well as the customer experience and whilst we, usually, succeed handsomely other entrepreneurs in our field have not been so successful with their ideas. On a recent visit to Sweden we stopped in at the Museum of Failure in Helsingborg and […]
KEEP YOURSELF HYDRATED
The recent hot weather conditions across the United Kingdom have highlighted one thing about us British, we like the summer. We like to get out and soak up the suns’ rays, get a nice bronze tan on our usually pasty white skins, feel the warmth and just to laze about under startling clear and cloudless […]
SIZE IS EVERYTHING
We’ve all seen it - shrinkage. Shrinkage in our wage packets, shrinkage in our waistlines - well the last one was wishful thinking - but shrinkage is a real issue when it comes to food. In recent years under pressure from the Government confectionary manufacturers have been forced to reduce the calorie content of their […]
Did you know that we Brits annually pour over £150 million into a sweet and delicious addiction: confectionary products? We’re also quite likely to forget the word’s ‘sharing pack’ on packets of sweets with one in four of us wolfing down the ‘meant to share’ treat by ourselves! It gets worse the younger we are […]
CASHLESS PAYMENTS – This your vending machine part of this quiet revolution ?
Sweden has been undergoing a quiet revolution in recent years. For today business in the country is almost entirely done with cashless payments.

US military aircraft designers asked by RAF where do we make a cuppa?
Everyone loves to brew up a cuppa, don’t we? Well yes if you’re British, much less so if you’re an American with their love of coffee. This has presented the Royal Air Force with something of a problem in the design of one of their latest, most sophisticated weapons of war, the Boeing P-8 Poseidon […]
Does Yorkshire grow its own tea?
It’s not as silly a question as you might think at first, after all it is called Yorkshire Tea isn’t it? Just to get our geography right, Yorkshire is a long, long way away from anywhere where you might expect to see tea grown commercially; but it is at the centre of an industry that […]
SWEETENER WON’T RAISE CANCER RISK
Do you sometimes worry about artificial sweeteners in your food and drink? We probably all do from time to time, after all the TV, radio and newspapers are full of sometimes contradictory information about their health benefits. So it is good to hear something positive. UKVending has a large range of sweeteners available to our […]
HEAVY METAL COFFEE
Let us first say that heavy metal coffee has nothing to do with mercury and any physical heavy metals, think more about pulsing, throbbing, overpowering bass lines and drumbeats\u2026think Megadeth and Coffee. If you were to see Dave Ellefson walking down the street you might not even notice him if you didn’t know he was […]

Well the latest trend has been started by American soft drink giant Coca Cola’s Israeli subsidiary, Coca Cola Israel. Bottles of Coke fitted with their own self camera in the base of the plastic bottle. So […]
