The Indiana Vending Council (IVC) hasn’t given up the fight against a discriminatory practice of taxing 20-ounce bottled water sold through a vending machine, but not taxing it in any other channel.
“I want to thank those who have contributed to this effort,” said Jeff Snyder, CEO of Snyder Food Services, Inc. in Kendallville, Ind., and president of the Indiana Vending Council told VendingMarketWatch. “Our efforts are still continuing and we appreciate the continued support.”
The lawsuit was filed by IVC member Rob Schlachter, president of RDM Sales and Service. Snyder said quite a few companies have already donated to the fund, but more work is needed. Additional donations can be made to the RDM Victory Fund and mailed to: Indiana Vending Council, PO Box 56074, Indianapolis, IN, 46526.
