It will soon be even easier for hungry vegans to find and grab a bite to eat on the go as a vegan vending machine will soon be installed in Bristol.
A completely vegan vending machine is coming to the streets of Bristol soon as UK-based company Vegan Vend has just successfully secured funding via a Kickstarter campaign to instal its first fully stocked plant-based vending machine.
Unlike a traditional vending machine, the Vegan Vend will not contain the usual offerings of crisps and chocolate bars and will instead give hungry passers-by the opportunity to purchase a selection of healthy snacks, desserts, sandwiches and wraps made by local suppliers.
Vegan Vend has already announced a number of products that are set to feature in the company’s debut machine. In the first machine, customers will find treats from Real Wrap Co. and Kind Cakes Mean Bakes, including tempting delights such as a vegan sausage sandwich, coronation chickpea sandwich, sweet potato pakora, and even a Bakewell slice, as well as a range of wraps and snacks which are yet to be confirmed.
To ensure the machine itself is eye-catching and tempting to encourage customers to grab a plant-based product the company is collaborating with local artists to design the exterior artwork on the vending machine.
A location and opening date have yet to be announced for the first Vegan Vend machine, but you can follow them on Twitter for regular updates.
