Micro Markets: Food Allergies, Sensitivities and Preferences

When it comes to food, some people have a lot to take into consideration. From allergies and sensitivities to simple preferences like vegetarianism or veganism, it can be hard for some people to find meals that suit their dietary needs and tastes. But for the employer looking to make sure their staff has easy access to a decent meal, snack or drink at work, this can make it hard to find suitable vending options that will appeal to everyone. It’s good to remember that vending can go beyond the traditional machine banks many of us are used to seeing with micro markets that allow for the variety you need to keep even the pickiest eater content.

Allergies and Intolerance

Gluten allergies and intolerances seem like they’re more and more common these days. And if you have a problem digesting gluten, you know that eating the wrong thing can totally ruin your day. The same goes for those who can’t tolerate lactose. Accidentally eating the wrong thing at work can make a decent day living hell. And an upset stomach is a sure distraction from completing your daily work tasks. So, it makes sense for employers who want to keep their workforce energized and happy to include lactose and gluten-free options in their micro markets.

Reading Labels

Label reading is a valuable tool for those who can’t tolerate certain ingredients and those who have chosen specific diets. For example, some foods may have gluten or lactose even if it may not be obvious. And many foods contain animal products that someone who is eating a vegan diet may want to avoid. That means that paying attention to labels is necessary. Micro markets are valuable for this reason. They allow your employees to peruse products before buying and read the nutrition labels before they make a purchase. This can help them avoid problematic ingredients and stay focused while at work.
