The AVA and Easyvend would like to inform consumers and customers that, during the coronavirus outbreak, there is no increased risk of using vending machines for drinks and snacks.
The spread of the coronavirus is causing great uncertainty among consumers and customers, and we would like to reiterate that vending machines are a reliable and safe way to obtain food and beverages. Vending machine operators, fillers and technicians place food safety and hygiene as top priorities in their daily service and are trained in both personal hygiene and protection against infections.
Consumers can be confident that the drink or snack purchased from the vending machine is safe. The disposable vending machine cup - which has recently been the subject of much criticism - is considered the safest and most hygienic way to consume a beverage.
