It’s been an award-winning time for AVA members…

Abercromby Vending, Scotland’s first and exclusive fresh food vending company, has won the ‘healthyliving award’ – a national award for the foodservice sector in Scotland, which rewards Scottish caterers for serving healthier food and helping their customers make improved food choices. As the only vending company to have ever received this accolade, the win – a vending industry first – will not only raise the standard of vending overall, but will also contribute significantly to maintaining a healthier image for vending going forward across the United Kingdom.

Leading packaging manufacturer Huhtamaki (UK) Ltd., has won the Foodservice Packaging Association (FPA) Marketing Award! A specially commissioned wedding dress made entirely from Huhtamaki BioWare paper cold cups was created to highlight the importance of recycling – providing a thought-provoking, fun take on the issue which is somewhat out of the hands of the packaging manufacturers but which needs to be encouraged and supported by operators themselves in order to satisfy consumer expectations. The dress was commissioned in support of Huhtamaki’s sponsorship of the first-ever Footprint Awards and the company’s on-going promotion of the positive benefits of foodservice packaging and disposable products. 

With over 200 members companies from all areas of the vending industry, which are subject to on-going quality standard approval to ensure that vending delivers the best possible service; choosing to source all of your site’s vending operation requirements through an AVA member offers reassurance that you’re dealing with a quality-approved company that has the right procedures and policies in place to provide exemplary vending for your establishment!
