Healthy Vending Machines in Washington, DC
There has certainly been a “buzz” in the media lately around the issue of healthy eating in general and healthy vending machines in Washington, DC in particular. Some companies have recently begun to try and offer healthy vending alternatives. However, Monumental Vending has been championing healthy vending machines and offering healthy vending choices for years now, well before it became a national trend.
There has been a growing discussion in this country recently about utilizing healthy vending machines in the fight to eat healthier. From efforts to fight childhood obesity to trends in organic products to efforts by company wellness programs to improve employee health, this trend is certainly growing and here to stay. Even Michele Obama has made healthier eating her top priority in Washington, DC and across the country. New laws have recently passed focusing on enhanced labeling of calories and other measurements of food health.
Craig Kushner, one of the owners of Monumental Vending, published an editorial in Automatic Merchandising Magazine back in March of 2005 advocating for the vending industry to embrace healthy vending machines as both an opportunity to do good and an opportunity for business growth.
