Our Stance On Products Is Very Simple…

HUMAN only endorses products that are free from artificial additives, including high-fructose corn syrup and partially-hydrogenated oils.

We take snacking very seriously and pride ourselves on being “Snack Masters.” By keeping a pulse on the $99B natural products industry and meeting one-on-one with the leaders in the industry as well as registered dietitians, public health professionals and nutrition activists, we’ve been able to cull a list of the most healthy, delicious and affordable foods and beverages on the market.

We have a catalog with over 1000 HUMAN-approved foods and beverages. Allow us to take out the guesswork, and to put our experience to work for you. HUMAN Franchise owners have access to a proprietary web store for ordering their product at greatly reduced rates. By using the combined purchasing power of our Franchise network, HUMAN has negotiated competitive rates.

The “Why” Behind HUMAN’s Products Policy

Hippocrates was on to something when he said, “Let food be thy medicine.” As a pre-med undergrad at Columbia University, I toured a lot of hospitals and one thing became clear: as a nation, while treatment is important, perhaps we should focus more on prevention and education. I wondered: could making healthful foods the norm in the places we spend the most time be a part of the puzzle to preventing diet-related illnesses? I knew that it could.

In 2008, I co-founded HUMAN with Andy Mackensen and we embarked on a journey to make healthy food more convenient than junk food. It started with healthy vending machines — at the time, a counterculture idea. Now? With 200+ franchisees in 40+ states, we sell millions of healthy snacks and beverages per year via The HUMAN Platform, which comprises healthy vending machineshealthy micro-markets and our healthy snack food delivery service, SnackNation.

Do you want healthful foods for your family? What about for your school, office, hospital or gym? We’d love to be your one-stop shop. From the HUMAN family to yours, happy snacking!

Smart Snacks In School

The Nutrition Game-Changer Affecting Schools July 1, 2014

Starting July 1st, 2014, all schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program will have to adhere to a new set of USDA standards called Smart Snacks In School (SSIS). The rules are a balance of evidence-based research and practicality, encouraging schools to sell competitive foods that are aligned with the USDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans: more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy options; and limits on calories, fat, sugar and sodium.

School Administrators in thousands of schools nationwide are scrambling to find a profitable “healthy vending” solution before incurring steep fines and 100% loss in much-needed revenue when the USDA enforces these rules starting July 1, 2014.

This has created an unprecedented opportunity for healthy vending business owners help schools transition their competitive foods programs to being 100% USDA-compliant.

If you want to learn more about the breakthrough new USDA Smart Snacks In School rules, how this impacts schools, and how it could impact your business, get your free copy of the Smart Snacks In School Survival Guide.

The Importance of Adhering to
Smart Snacks In School

“The evidence is increasingly clear that the foods sold to children in schools affect their health. We conducted a health impact assessment to explore this very question: What would be the impact of updating the standards for snack and a la carte foods in schools?  The overwhelming conclusion was that setting standards for these foods could greatly reduce children’s risk of chronic disease. Research published since then further reinforces that conclusion. For instance, one recent study showed that students living in states with strong nutrition standards gained less weight over a three-year period than those in states with weaker guidelines.”

There are no special requirements we can’t meet. Do you require a gluten-free or peanut-free menu? A low-carb mix? Smart Snacks In School compliance? Want fresh local foods? Healthful frozen meals? We’ve got you’ve covered—there’s no dietary or legislative requirement we cannot meet.
