Tobacco vending machine supplier Jofemar UK has launched an automatic cigarette dispenser system for retail outlets.
Responding to government legislation that will ban the display of tobacco in small stores from April 2015, the new retail sales unit keeps tobacco products out of sight and dispenses them at the touch of a button. The unit can be linked to an electronic till to automatically add the purchase to other transactions.
The machine is available in three sizes with varying capacities up to 1,644 packs of cigarettes in 87 channels. Each model has a complete electronic programming system with individual product pricing, self-diagnostics and full sales data capture and retrieval.
