Corporate Wellness Provider Partners With Healthy Vending Company

Viverae, a national corporate wellness provider, announced a partnership with h.u.m.a.n. Healthy Vending. Through this new endeavor, Viverae can help clients round out their onsite healthy offerings with an innovative healthy vending solution that provides healthier snack options from h.u.m.a.n. Healthy Vending.

"h.u.m.a.n. Healthy Vending is a natural complement to the full range of services Viverae offers," said Robin Claterbaugh, senior vice president of account management and marketing in a prepared statement. "Providing healthier snack and drink options is a great way to enhance our clients' investment in wellness and promote a healthy lifestyle in the work environment. This additional offering can extend our clients' commitment to a strong culture of health."

"We are a snacking society," noted Sean Kelly, chief humanist at h.u.m.a.n. Healthy Vending. "On average 30 percent or more of daily calories are consumed from snacks and beverages. This has a huge impact on health, performance, and productivity." Health experts and vending industry veterans formed h.u.m.a.n. Healthy Vending with the intention of mutually encouraging healthy lifestyles and charitable giving, with 10 percent of proceeds dedicated to charitable causes that fight obesity and malnutrition. h.u.m.a.n. stands for helping unite man and nutrition.

h.u.m.a.n. Healthy Vending utilizes state-of-the-art vending machines that can accept cash, credit or debit cards, and utilize conveyor belts versus the old wire rings for a greater range of snack dispensing options. The machines can be equipped with LCD screens and even monitor and track daily purchases for a greater understanding of employee product demand.
