SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The concept of vending machines has excelled way beyond candy and chips. Innovative minds have created some of the most interesting vending concepts that are featured in this week's segment of The Lempert Report Innovation Series, a weekly video series featuring innovation in the food world.
Sponsored by Tetra Pak, the videos are found online at The Lempert Report's Youtube Channel and on Tetra Pak's consumer Web site BeCartonSmart.com.
"Today's hectic lifestyle requires convenience and accessible on-the-go-items and a vending machine is the perfect way to deliver," says Phil Lempert, CEO and editor of The Lempert Report. "The innovation is impressive and besides, it's just really fun to use."
For example, the Let's Pizza vending machine in Italy kneads the dough, forms a round, adds tomato sauce, layers toppings and then bakes it in three minutes. The Chef's Farm vending machine in Japan can produce 60 heads of lettuce per day and the Beverly Hills Caviar vending machine sells caviar priced from $5-$600.
The Lempert Report Innovation Series is available online for consumers, food industry insiders and also as a ready-to-air segment for newsrooms. Throughout the video, "Tetra Pak Tips" provide behind-the-scenes insight about the products, packaging and trends.
