Farmer’s Fridge is a salad manufacturing company. It offers a novel way to sell its products: vending machines!
Luke Saunders, the founder of the company, prefers the term “kiosk.” But the effect is the same: put in money, then make a product selection using a touchscreen menu and you get a fresh salad.
The first machine is in place at the Garvey Food Court in Chicago. It offers a variety of salads, most of which appear to be indecently healthy. They’re served in clear plastic jars which can be returned to the vending machine and recycled. The machines are restocked every day to ensure freshness.
