Selecta helps Imperial College swap to sustainable vending
The switch to a partnership with Selecta enabled Imperial College to offer ethical options to its eco-conscious students and more than double its return. <<
Selecta has been fantastic, they invested in stylish housing for the machines and were able to offer a range of ethically sourced, high quality hot drinks.
Working closely with Selecta and in particular Richard Crossman, Selecta's Business Development Manager, Imperial has successfully swapped to sustainable vending across the college's three campuses. Their sustainable vending facilities include premium hot drinks with Selecta's own Fairtrade certified bean-to-cup coffee brand, miofino etico, with 100 per cent skimmed milk powder (99.5 percent fat free), Fairtrade certified hot chocolate and Rainforest Alliance certified tea. All delivered through Selecta's Grande Milano vending concept, which enables Imperial's students to enjoy a range of cafe style drinks from Cappuccino to hot chocolate in a large, 12oz paper cup with sip lid much like they are used to from the high street coffee shops.
"Selecta has been fantastic, they invested in stylish housing for the machines and were able to offer a range of ethically sourced high quality hot drinks. In addition, Selecta's Balanced Options range has enabled me to meet students' demand for healthier yet popular soft drinks, snacks and confectionery products - I'd recommend Selecta to anyone who's seriously looking to swap to sustainable vending or questioning their vending facilities!" reported David Hughes, Facilities Manager, Imperial College.
