Snacks Giving Back

Profits from base vending machines are going back into Defence welfare programs.

MORE than $500,000 was channelled from the Army and Air Force Canteen Service (AAFCANS) vending machines into Defence welfare funds in the past financial year.
In all, AAFCANS contributed $549,026 from its automated retail vending program to Army and Air Force welfare. The top three recipients were Lavarack Barracks, which received $99,318, Gallipoli Barracks with $56,929 and Albury-Wodonga with $54,997.

The profits generated by 274 AAFCANS-branded vending machines, located across 28 ADF bases, went to 31 Defence welfare funds. AAFCANS vending machines earn big rewards for their host bases and provide members with 24-hour access to amenities. AAFCANS is developing a new range of tap-and-go vending facilities. Machines that include heatand-serve meals, protein and health snacks, beauty and convenience products, and baristastyle coffee are being trialled at some bases.

AAFCANS managing director Stewart McGrow said ADF clubs had access to wholesale pricing, discounts, trade promotions and base deliveries via AAFCANS canteens. “The support offered includes coffee machines, consumables, grocery and beverage products, and assistance with point-of-sale equipment and training,” he said. “Our current Red Bull promotion offers clubs purchase incentives, freebies and a chance to contribute to AAFCANS promotional funds in aid of Army and Air Force welfare.”
