The world’s largest vending machines manufacturer has a new product in the market: vending machines that are made from organic clay and other materials.
The company, Candy Supply, is a joint venture between Indian conglomerate PepsiCo and a German company, Siemens, according to a statement.
The company, which is known for making organic clay, is targeting India’s growing middle class of around 250 million people.
They want to create a sustainable product, which makes their products more appealing and easier to use, said the statement from Candy Supply.
They are now expanding their product portfolio and working on new and improved products.
The Candy Supply product, called the Organic Clay Vending Machine, was launched at the first World Food Summit (WFS) in Mumbai on March 14, where over 2,000 attendees were invited to try a new vending machine.
It’s being sold in several major cities, including Bengaluru, New Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai.
Candy Supply’s founder and CEO, Arvind Gupta, told Quartz he’s “really happy” about the product’s launch and said it will soon make its way to major markets in the U.S., Europe and the Middle East.
“We have the right ingredients,” he said.
“This product has been a long time in the making, and we are happy that we have achieved the launch,” Gupta added.
The clay is used in making ceramic bowls, bowls made from ceramic tiles, and clay bowls made of ceramic tiles.
The clay is made by combining different clay materials, including sand, rock, and gravel, into a clay powder.
The powder is then heated and poured into a pot, which then expands the clay, making the clay ball form and solidify.
Cable-TV channel CNBC said the clay was made by an Indian company called Vishwakarma and was first made for the world’s first “toy vending machine” in Delhi in 2000.
In March, the company announced that it was adding an artificial sweetener to its products, including the Organic Clear, to help promote healthier eating habits.
The firm is currently experimenting with adding a second sweetener, which it expects to release in the coming months.
The first Organic Clay vending machine is priced at around $100.
The first Organic Clear machine, which launched in November, costs $150.
