Vending machines are often seen as nutritional trash dispensers, distributing high-calorie, low-nutrition, artery-paving snacks. Laurent Amzallag says it doesn't have to be this way.
As head of the year-old, Bethesda, Md.-based Snappy Snacks, Amzallag heads a company devoted to providing more-healthful alternatives to the machine-bound.
Instead of soft drinks, potato chips and candy bars, Snappy Snacks machines offer natural juices, relatively wholesome soups, baked corn chips and protein bars as well as ginger mints, animal crackers and ready-to-eat vegetarian meals that can be heated in the microwave.
The goal of Snappy Snacks is to offer a healthful alternative for quick meals and snacks.
