The Automatic Vending Association has just announced that Diane Hunter has joined the AVA Board as the new Operator Representative.

Apple Vending provides a level of service that is unparalleled in the vending and catering industry as Diane puts a great emphasis on the importance on tailoring solutions to deliver top quality services and products, these same views she intends to bring to the AVA Board.


Diane’s years of experience are also where she has gained a wealth of knowledge in our dynamic trade and with more than a decade of involvement with the AVA, Diane understands how much the AVA can achieve and do for operators, and wants to push this even further with her new, fresh & innovative ideas.
