California based company FDS Manufacturing Co. has created a clear plastic clamshell container the size and shape of a 12-fl.oz. can or bottle that vends fresh fruit from a cold drink vending machine.
The container is reportedly supplied flat and can be rolled around fruit like grapes and berries and snapped closed.
FDS has trademarked the name “Vend-D-Pack” for the new vendible container. The company plans to add 12-, 16- and 20-oz. sizes.
