The solution to obesity is clean eating and replacing typical sugar-infested vending machines with healthy options is a great idea. How about salad in a vending machine? Well a Chicago-based startup is making that happen:
The Chicago-based startup collects fresh produce direct from local farms each morning and begins making the day’s salads, breakfast pots and health snacks at 5am. By 10am, the meals are ready and loaded into the touchscreen-enabled kiosk, with any leftovers from the previous day packed up and donated to a foodbank. Ranging from the superfood Detox Salad to the bodybuilding High Protein Salad, each meal is packed into a 100 percent recyclable plastic jar which can be returned to the kiosk once it’s empty. The gourmet salads start at USD 7.99, although the price automatically drops by USD 1 at 6pm each day.
