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.

At GEM Vending we understand the importance of our role within todays society in promoting healthier food and drink choices within Education.  We also help to promote nutritional health information and understanding 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 healthy snacks such as fruit, nuts, cereal bars and other low-fat alternatives. There are also opportunities to have bespoke machines tailored to their surroundings using combined healthier snacks and cold drinks to make machines more school compliant.

Working with you to achieve your goals

All maintained Schools and Academies in England founded before 2010 and after 2014 are required to adhere to Government guidelines aiming to reduce children’s and younger persons sugar consumption.  Here at GEM we can work with you to achieve this.

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