Snacks and cold drinks

Our in-depth consumer insight ensures that our ranges can meet your students’ needs. For example – contrary to popular opinion – students are actually very health-conscious. Our data shows that water is the cold drink of choice, outselling the next product by 2:1. Healthier options have also proved to be popular when it comes to snacking.

Our recommended ranges for this sector include:

  • Classic – bringing students familiar brands they know and love, alongside a range of healthier options
  • Discover – the latest snack and cold drink product innovations, designed for the more adventurous snacker

Student with coffee

More than just coffee

Research by the NUS and Youthsight in 2016 showed that coffee shops and cafes are the most important services for students, even ahead of bars! Our own research showed that hot drinks vending provides students with a convenient option to get their caffeine fix.

Bring them coffee brands that resonate, with fully branded Lavazza offers. You can choose from a variety of blends, including certified alternatives, and enjoy a taste of Italy from eye-catching fully branded vending machines and self serve offers.

Our research also shows that hot chocolate is very popular with students so we have a variety of hot chocolates on offer, including Fairtrade certified hot chocolate.
