Healthy vending machines are one step closer in Victoria

Supplying healthier foods and drinks in your organisation is now even easier with the launch of a new FREE online vending machine assessment tool.

The Healthy Eating Advisory Service's new vending machine assessment tool helps you to determine if your vending machine/s meet Victorian government guidelines and policies for healthy food and drinks.

The tool is available for all Victorian organisations with vending machines on their premises.

You’ll receive a report immediately after completing your assessment, which outlines if your vending machine currently meets the requirements of the Victorian Government’s Healthy Choices guidelines or the School Canteens and Other School Food Services Policy. It will also includes recommendations to help you meet the guidelines, plus advice on product positioning and branding.

The vending machine assessment tool can be used in Victorian organisations where food and drinks are supplied including:

  • workplaces
  • hospitals and health services
  • sport and recreation centres
  • parks and recreational reserves
  • tertiary education providers
  • schools
