Healthy Vending Choices With Health Star Ratings

Health Star Rated Vending Machines

Qualityvend is proud to be the first vending company to be formally recognised by The George Institute for offering the Health Star Rating system in their healthy vending machine options nationally.

People are generally becoming more health conscious, so they are actively looking for healthier snack and drink options in the workplace. Our healthy vending choices can provide your employees and customers with the healthy and delicious snacks, drinks and meals that they crave.


Many companies have implemented, or are in the process of implementing, corporate wellness programs as a means to help lower rising healthcare costs and promote a healthier, more productive workforce. Eating a healthy, balanced diet has many benefits for the overall health of your employees including increased energy and work productivity — even fewer sick days. A healthy diet can also help to prevent health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.

By offering healthy vending options in your workplace, you’re letting your staff know you care about their health and wellbeing. Not only will this help with creating a workplace they can thrive in, but one where they want to work as well.


The Health Star Rating system has been implemented across Australia to regulate the nutritional value of packaged foods. It provides Australians with an easy-to-read labelling system so they can make healthier choices in their daily lives. The system gives a rating to packaged items based on a scale of one to five stars with five being the healthiest choice. Qualityvend is proud to offer Health Star ratings on our healthy vending machine products so you can implement this program in your workplace.

The Health Star Rating system assigns a set number of stars to every product depending on how healthy a choice it is to consumers. Products can be assigned anywhere from half a star to five stars, with five stars being the healthiest option available. Thousands of products have been rated with the Health Star Rating system, and they can be seen in most major shopping centres in Australia.

Health stars are assigned to products based on a number of health-related factors including sugar content, fat content, nutritional value and vitamin content. Using these factors, the overall healthiness of a product is calculated and the correlating number of stars is assigned. Using these stars, consumers can make more educated decisions about what products to choose for their health.

The Health Star Rating System was developed by the Australian government in partnership with health organisations around the country. They identified a lack of available information on nutrition, wellness and healthy eating available to Australians so this program is designed to provide easy to access, relevant information right at the source of the products.

Making healthy decisions in what products we choose to eat is key to living long, healthy lives. By providing access to critical health-related information to Australians, the Health Star Rating system empowers consumers to take control of their health. With an overwhelming amount of products available for purchase these days, being able to clearly identify which products are healthy compared to others is essential for the health of Australia.
