Starting the Healthy Vending Machine Revolution

Fairtrade Vending specialise in supplying colleges, universities, and schools with vending machines. All machines can be filled with nutritional, low fat, reduced sugar options in line with government guidelines and restrictions for in-school nutrition. 

Whilst many believe vending machines in schools is a bad idea due to health concerns, schools and colleges are some of our most popular venues for our machines. Students and staff will have the opportunity to buy nutritional drinks and snacks from our machines, keeping them refreshed and ready to work. We also provide cashless options and touch screen for a modern, convenient experience. 

Whether you’re looking to provide hot and cold drinks, hot meals or snacks as part of your vending solutions, we can help. As well as easing queues in break and lunchtimes, our vendors can provide healthy alternatives to junk food and snacks that are both attractively packaged and reasonably priced. See more about our vending machine supplies here.

What Other Solutions do we Offer?

Whilst hand hygiene has always been important, COVID-19 has placed handwashing as a vital part of people’s daily routine. Schools and workplaces have been forced to provide more handwashing facilities to ensure the spread of coronavirus is kept under control. 

Fairtrade Vending are proud to provide a wide range of handwashing stations both portable and plumbed in for the convenience of schools, colleges and universities. With a high influx of students entering your buildings every day, it is important that you offer extra facilities to keep both students and staff safe.  

Fairtrade vending can install, maintain and remove the stations as and when necessary. Talk to us to see how we can help. Our team also provides water coolers for staff, sixth form break areas, school offices and primary schools that encourage students to rehydrate and look after their health. 

Having a water cooler installed can make a big difference within the classroom. Our team can regularly supply you with the quality bottled water needed to fill these coolers, with regular deliveries and maintenance as part of our contract.
