CHICAGO -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association made headlines last week in New York City with the launch of its Public Health Commitment, designed to increase the percentage of “better for you” offerings in vending machines over the next three years.

Industry members are invited to learn more as NAMA chief executive Carla Balakgie and senior vice-president vice-president of external affairs Eric Dell will join outside experts to share how this commitment will help the convenience services industry align with consumer demand for “better-for-you” products.

The commitment, to be 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.

“There are nearly four million vending machines serving snacks and beverages every day, 24/7, across this country,” said Balakgie. “Vending is everywhere consumers work, play and live and NAMA regards this initiative as a bold, ambitious and meaningful step to meet the growing consumer demand for healthier choices.”
