Price Increases in Vending Machine Services
In June, 2011, due to the ever increasing costs of product ingredients, Canteen Vending must implement an across the board price increase on their vending products.
This will be the first price increase within two (2) years. Major manufacturers are continuing to experience increased costs in the basic ingredients used to manufacture their products. In turn, the manufactures are passing these increased costs onto the wholesale distributors, which are unfortunately then passed on to the consumers.
