CHICAGO -- OCTOBER 29, 2019 – The industry made major news last week in New York City following the launch of the Public Health Commitment, designed to increase the percentage of ‘better for you’ offerings in vending machines over the next three years.

You are invited to learn more as NAMA CEO Carla Balakgie and Sr VP 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, 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 NAMA CEO Carla 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.”
