Blink's Sustainable Retail Insights
The idea of food from vending machines does not sound totally new to us, but a machine that creates and serves fresh food on the spot does. The food served is good to eat, and good for the planet, supporting customers to limit their carbon impact (with use of recyclable kraft bowls and bamboo cutlery). BOLK reduced their meat supply to reduce their carbon emissions (1kg of beef = emission of 27 kg of CO2). The BOLK company, a member of 1% For the Planet association, is the first food company to get involved. For every €100 of turnover, they donate €1 to the association. *Animal production accounts for almost 15 percent of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions (Livsmedelsverket Swedish Food Agency).
