Future Trend 1: Vending machines that provide healthy food. An argument against vending machines carrying healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables has been the higher cost of having to refrigerate and frequently replace the food when it spoils. (Try keeping an apple, not the machine but the fruit, in your handbag or purse as long as you can a bag of potato chips). Another argument has been that people are not demanding such food in vending machines. But as storage technology improves and calls for healthy food in vending machines increases, some businesses having been moving towards vending machines that carry healthier food.

Future Trend 2: Vending machines that provide nutritional and health education. Other food sources such as restaurants and grocery stores have been voluntarily (or the opposite of voluntarily) moving towards providing more nutritional information and education about their products. For example, last year, New York City passed an ordinance that requires chain restaurants to place a salt shaker icon on menu items to indicate food that exceed the daily recommended limit for salt intake. Also, a number of grocery stores have been taking steps to offer more nutrition information and tips to choose healthier foods. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) already requires operators who own or operate 20 or more vending machines to disclose calorie information for food sold from vending machines, subject to certain exemptions.

WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Kate Spade has been exploring new retail concepts with “Saturday” recently in New York. The brand created four walk up shoppable interactive windows in formerly vacant retail stores. The density of pedestrian traffic on the sidewalks of New York City make it an optimal place to grab attention with an eye catching or innovative store window display.

Each of the storefronts were painted a signature bright yellow hue and accented with bold black and white graphic patterns. A selection of the brightly colored apparel and accessories are displayed on hangers and hooks inside the windows. Shopping takes place through a large touch screen display. Customers can browse the entire collection and get specific product information. Shape and fit of the apparel items can be previewed on model photos.

The checkout process simply requires entering a mobile phone number. A confirmation text is sent and following approval, orders will be delivered free by courier service within one hour in Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn. Couriers will even wait while customers try on the clothes they’ve ordered, and only take payment for the items they decide to keep.

Business ideas for foodies, and for good reason, food truck has a bright future: a December 2012 study by Intuit and Emergent Research predicted that revenue from the food truck industry will reach $2.7 billion by 2017. A truck is a much less expensive investment than a brick-and-mortar restaurant and, according to Mobi Munch founder Josh Tang, the failure rate for food trucks is just 10 to 20 percent (as opposed to 60 to 90 percent for restaurants). With the right equipment and some great recipes, you can have your mobile eatery up and running in no time.Credit: Food Truck Image via Shutterstock

VENDING PARIS 2014 Featuring the Newest Business Ideas and Vending Machines

Vending Paris 2014 NAMA show offers new technology and business ideas for your next vending machine. Andreas Exarheas a food editor for Food & Beverage features the Vending Paris show in a recent post with the newest vending solutions..

The iON machine features InstaChill technology, which instantly chills water without air contacting the water supply, and a RapidHot system that has the capacity to produce up to two gallons of piping hot water per hour. http://www.foodbev.com/opinion/microwaves-and-baseball-bats-at-vending#.Uwy-RbCYYdV

This product also offers a sparkling water option, as well as an energy saving ‘sleep mode’, and its CarbonPlus Filter can be removed by hand without turning off the water supply.

To finish off my first day at the event, I headed over to IntuiSense Technologies’ Interactive Vending Machine (IVM) and found out a little bit more about the French organization’s innovative and eye-catching new design. The company’s international sales and marketing director Catherine Yzer explained that the system uses gesture recognition technology instead of traditional touchscreen equipment, which allows for a secure surface capable of withstanding the force of a baseball bat! The IVM is also completely customizable and supports a variety of payment options such as cash-less, closed loop and classic coin systems.

easymeal800-150wFollowing a quick walk around the exhibition hall, I came across the new Easymeal vending machine: a vending system designed specifically for ready meals that includes three of its very own microwaves. This vending machine holds 12 different meals, all of which contain cutlery and take two minutes to cook for the price of €4.

Easymeal co-founder and CEO George Badra told me the company doesn’t charge for the installation of its new vending machine, and stated that this product was built in order to ‘bring convenience to the lives of public consumers’.

Easymeal is the answer for the healthy consumer.

2014 Trends in the Food – Beverage Industry

Thinking of starting a small business or need new fresh business ideas to expand your existing business into the food and beverage market?                   Carts Blanche, VendaCarts, Mobile Retail Store is the revolutionary business opportunity for 201416

http://blog.marketresearch.com/projected-2014-trends-in-the-food-beverage-industry

1. Overall food and beverage retail sales will continue to rise throughout 2014.  Packaged Facts predicts sales to reach $667.5 billion next year, which is a 4.5% increase over 2013’s sales of $638.8 billion. When broken down, this influx accounts for only 1-2% in actual unit growth, but also takes into account an estimated inflation rate of 3-4%. Sales are expected to gain momentum throughout the year and continue to grow, reaching an expected $796 billion by 2018.

2. Sales of private label products will continue to grow, reaching $133 billion by 2016. When the recession hit in 2008, the sales of private label products began growing at a steady pace. In just four years from 2008 to 2012, sales increased from $82.8 billion to $104 billion. During this time, private labels gained much favor and popularity. Now that the economy is steadily building again, private label sales are continuing to grow due to improved quality and increased marketing. In fact, many shoppers have found store brands that are comparable or that they prefer to leading national brands’ products.

groceryshopping3. Fresh foods will continue to hold more and more importance in shoppers’ retailer preference. When it comes to choosing a regular food and beverage retailer, there are several key factors people consider. In The Future of Food Retailing in the U.S.: Shopper Insights and Market Opportunities, 4th Edition, Packaged Facts sites FMI’s study U.S. Grocery Shopper Trends 2012, revealing that in addition to competitive prices and cleanliness, due to growing health and wellness awareness, high quality produce and fresh foods are now one of the most important determining factors in where consumers shop. Because of the increasing importance of fresh foods, supercenters can no longer rely on commodity pricing to maintain their customers. In fact, in Why Retailers are Keeping it Fresh: Fresh Foods Not Spoiled by Inflationary Heat, Nielson Perishables Group predicts that during 2014 and the following years, supermarkets will begin to lose market share to the larger supercenters, who are now placing more importance on the quality of these items.

4. Emphasis on healthy eating will continue to make its way into schools and alternative food and beverage retail options. With continued focus on health-conscious offerings, alternative food and beverage retailers will experience some change during 2014 as well. Most notably, by the fall start of the 2014 school year, the USDA’s “Smart Snacks in Schools” initiative will take effect, banning the sale of sugary and unhealthy snack foods and drinks from vending machines located in public schools nationwide. Traditional vending machine items, such as candy, cookies and sugary drinks, will be replaced with healthier offerings like whole wheat crackers, fruit cups and fat-free milk.
