Applestone Meat Company is a brand that is aiming to reduce the need for human contact when it comes to purchasing thanks to a sustainable meat vending machine. The dispenser is a refrigerator that consumers can walk up to, place money inside and walk away with their preferred cut of meat without the need to talk to an employee. The process eliminates the need for brand employees working to serve storefront customers and keeps the transaction quick in a timely manner.

While visiting a vending machine to purchase meat might seem a bit bizarre, the Applestone Meat Company offers the same quality product and variety with over 240 items to choose from in its dispenser. Consumers can order foods such as burgers, sausages and even pet food simply by touching a button.
