UKV School Vending
We can help your school establish a healthier, effective and profitable vending service to promote balance and variety in the food and drinks offered.
Vending is only worthwhile if the right products, attractively packaged & reasonably priced, are well displayed in a clean, modern, chilled cabinet.
If you want children in your school to buy healthy snacks from the school and not fill up at the chip shop or with crisps and chocolate on their way to school then let us help you tempt them.
It really is time to empower your school's healthy nutritional programme by ensuring that the snacks and drinks provided throughout the school not only meet all the standards required but are attractive, tasty products that are well priced and likely to increase sales and revenue for the school.
You know more about teaching than vending - of that we have no doubt.
So why not let us bring our vending expertise to bear on your behalf?

What is healthier vending?
Many schools have vending machines and, although vending may have been criticised in the past, there is no reason why they cannot provide a range of food and drink that is in line with healthier eating and is supportive of a whole school approach. Healthier vending may help generate income for your school.
Vending should not be looked at in isolation, but as part of the planning for the whole school food service. The vending service should reflect the objectives of your Whole School Food Policy.
