How the future of vending began.
The Mother story.
“I love food. Always have. Always will.
I come from a large family of five brothers, lucky enough to enjoy a wholesome home-cooked meal every night (thanks Mum and Dad!). It taught me that good food leads to a happier, healthier life – a philosophy that became harder to live by when I entered the world of work.
Too busy to get away from my desk, I often found myself eating sugar-laden stuff from the vending machine or on-site coffee shop. Convenient: yes. Healthy: no. Then, after a year out travelling and more than a few run-ins with airport vending machines, it occurred to me that they don't have to be filled with crisps and chocolate. And the idea for Mother was born.
In January 2014, I teamed up with a heap of talented foodies and techies to craft the concept of Mother. It’s simple really: help the busy eat better by reinventing vending. I hope you agree that it’s not your average machine. Filled with healthy, wholesome, nutritionally-balanced food, we’re going to change convenient snacking, one vend at a time.”
