In the eyes of many, vending has historically been a frustrating entity. Shabby, unreliable snack machines used to take your money and not dispense your item, whilst coffee machines used to deliver something merely ‘wet and warm’. But like most things, vending has quickly advanced, and it has advanced perhaps far quicker than you will ever have imagined…
After a lot of anticipation, we can finally announce the exciting new product that is now available to order on our Refreshment Shop. The rCUP is a revolutionary product by ‘Ashortwalk’, who aim to make sure today’s waste is tomorrow’s product. With this in mind, rCUP not only reduces the amount of waste from used coffee cups but also provides an unrivalled drinking experience for the consumer.
Here at Coinadrink, we look for every possible way to support the environment and be as economical as we can. ‘The Cup Of Tomorrow’ is an example of this; an exciting new takeaway coffee cup that is ethically sourced and easily recycled at the end of its (very long!) life. It will be revealed next week so keep your eyes peeled across our social media, but why is it that we are making such a big deal about it? The fact is that sustainability has always been an important topic for us, and we’ve always gone the extra mile to take care of our planet.

No sooner has our last exhibition finished, we are now gearing up for our next one!

It’s safe to say that the vending industry is far from what it used to be. Gone are the days where you needed to insert the exact change only for your packet of crisps to jam on the way down. Now, advanced technology creates a premium user experience, and there has been plenty of other introductions over the years that have graced the industry in one way or another. Here’s some of the best vending trends.
As of July 2018, carbonated drinks are a major asset to convenience retailers. They are worth an estimated £862m every year and here in the UK, it is the likes of Coca Cola and Pepsi that consume a large chunk of the market. Despite this, many of the global favourites are brands that you’ll probably have never heard of, crafted using ingredients that you wouldn’t cast a second glance towards. Without further ado, here are some of the most popular soft drinks from all over the world…
