Vending By JSR Fresh Produce And Farm Vending Machines
Vending by JSR are the UK’s only supplier of fresh produce vending machines
Just over 18 months ago Vending by JSR unveiled the Rosler Farm Food Vending Machine to the industry at the Pig and Poultry Fair. This was a multipurpose healthy vending machine that the company had installed at their own farm in Scotland to sell their own eggs.
Former BFREPA chairman John Retson had the idea as he wanted to sell some of his own eggs to the local public, but did not want to have a honesty box system as these are unreliable and deliver an inconsistent financial yield.
The machine that John fitted was a great success, so Vending by JSR accepted an offer from Rosler and became the UK distributor for this exciting new sales and marketing machine.
Since unveiling the farm food vending machine last year Vending by JSR has had a steady increase in enquiries. In the Scottish retail territory alone there are now over 15 machines operational and delivering exceptional financial returns for farmers and retailers that took the bold step and invested in this new idea.
They are selling eggs, organic food, vegetables and even jams and oatmeal and are getting great positive feedback from the customers that are using them. The machines have increased sales in every site they have been installed and proved a real hit. On more than one occasion the machines have made the local press.
Generating Exposure . . . and Sales
As seen on National Television and Radio News
One machine due to it being the first in a major city shopping centre even made the national TV and radio news which was excellent exposure for the vegetable company that had installed it. Since the success of that machine the vegetable company in question has went on to buy a further machines for other sites and are looking to expand some more in 2016. There are more customers who after the success of their machines have now ordered a second or more, proving that these machines really do work well.
There are 5 vending machines working in England so far sited from Ainslow in the midlands across to Stowmarket in the east and just recently summerset in the south west. This is an area that Vending by JSR want to expand further.
These Vending machines can be used to sell really anything.
There are 7 different locker sizes so can house anything from a jar of jam up to a 25kg bag of potatoes and can be built specific to your needs. We can build them chilled or non-chilled depending on the produce you are looking to retail.
