Vibrant Vegan and Open Kitchen Co. have partnered to launch 500 vending machines serving hot vegan meals in U.K hospitals by 2030. 

The first machine was installed at Hillingdon Hospital in London earlier this month – after a survey revealed 78 percent of NHS staff would opt for a vegan meal if available. 

‘Improve’ staff diets

According to the London Economic, Founder of Vibrant Vegan Iain Burke-Hamilton said: “As we all know, the [National Health Service] has been doing an incredible job of keeping the country afloat during this terrible pandemic…

“It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with Open Kitchen Co. to try and make a difference – we’re confident the partnership is going to improve the quality of NHS staff diets across the country.”

‘Nutritious meals’

Director of Open Kitchen Co Liz Kenny added: “It’s great to be working with the NHS and providing staff and visitors with hot, tasty, and nutritious meals 24/7. The future of vending is exciting. 

“Our high-tech machines have touchless COVID-proof technology, advanced software, and a super speedy oven that can cook meals from frozen in three-four minutes.”
