Tito’s , a manufacturer of single-serve, portion pack jalapenos, peppers and jumbo dill pickles, recently entered the vending channel, having exhibited at this year’s National Automatic Merchandising Association show in Las Vegas.

The products are certified kosher, gluten-free, zero fat, zero carbs and low-calorie and have a one-year shelf life with no refrigeration required.

“Vending is one of our newest channels,” said Chris Snider, president. “That was driven both by having some demand from vending customers, and also the ability to fulfill orders through Vistar .” In addition to selling through distributors, the company direct ships to customers using couriers.
