The typical vending machine likely features a selection of candy, snacks, or soft drinks, but Australian Lamb Meals' 'Flavour Station' isn't the typical vending machine. Unveiled at Lambex 2016, the Flavour Station vends a selection of Australian Lamb Meals' ready-made meatball meals.
Beyond selling just sauced meatballs, the Flavour Station sells complete meals. There are four that the current prototype offers. These are: rice and a Massaman curry sauce, rice and a tamarind lime peppercorn sauce, couscous and a tagine sauce, and pasta with a Napolitano sauce. Each of the dishes feature Australian Lamb Meals' meatballs as the main protein.
Trials of the fully automated vending machine have been run in Frankfurt, Germany, as well as several towns in Belgium and Austria.
