LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leading manufacturer of automated retailing centers and custom vending machines, announced today that it has been featured in SelfServiceNewsMagazine.com, a leading industry trade publication, in an article regarding the opportunities for vending companies in 2016.
"One of the biggest opportunities to hit the vending industry in decades is the new FDA requirement that vending operators must disclose nutritional and caloric content on the products sold in their machines," according to the article. "This new regulation will generate business for manufacturers, pump new technology-driven machines into the market, and ultimately provide more sales for operators."
AVT's client, RSA Management, was quoted in the piece.
"According to John Murn, President of RSA Management Group and President of the New York State Automatic Vending Association, the new FDA requirements are good for the industry," the magazine reported.
"People are making healthier choices and consumers are looking for information," Murn said. "With the right product mix, I expect sales to increase."
The magazine reported, "RSA group plans on purchasing hundreds of new, FDA-compliant machines within this year."
The article also spoke favorably about AVT's newest vending machine.
"Some of the new systems being introduced into the market to meet the FDA requirements are quite stunning," according to the report. "The MultiShopper from California manufacturer AVT, features a large 8" touchscreen panel to increase customer engagement, and a topper screen that can play promotional announcements, ads or videos to attract interest and promote sales. The system also allows operators to change prices instantly and view real-time sales and inventory reports via a unique wireless control system."
The article also cautioned buyers that not every machine that claims to be FDA-compliant will actually work in field situations, so buyers "need to do their homework."
"We are pleased to be featured in this report, and appreciative of the positive review of our flagship product," Wayne Salvino, President of AVT, Inc. commented. "We set out to develop the nation's best new vending machine that would meet FDA requirements, while providing valuable features and benefits that result in increased customer satisfaction and a higher ROI for operators."
