Schools, Higher Education and University Vending Machines

At GEM Vending, we regularly install, stock, and service vending machines for schools, universities, and other educational establishments across the UK.

Here at GEM we understand the importance of our role within todays society, in both promoting Healthier Choices within education but also helping to promote information and understand via our FREE nutritional QR codes that appear on every machine.

It’s for this reason that we offer a range of healthy vending solutions. These machines can be stocked with such healthy snacks as fruit, nuts, cereal bars, and other low-fat alternatives. There are also opportunities to have machines bespoke to their surroundings and using combined snacks and cold drinks to achieve school compliant machines.

Working with you to achieve your goals

English Schools and Academies are required to meet certain government standards, these guidelines apply to all maintained schools and academies founded before 2010 and after June 2014 and aim to reduce sugar consumption in children and young people. We can work with you to achieve this.

Higher Education and Universities are exempt from these government guidelines. That’s why, alongside the healthier alternatives, we can also stock the machines with the firm favourites and top brands to ensure we meet the needs of everyone.

Tailored solutions for you

When it comes to vending machines for schools, further education & universities, at GEM Vending we specialise in tailoring our vending solutions based on our clients’ specific needs.Cleaning a vending machine
