Innovative Displays Allow Operators to Meet New FDA Requirements

CORONA, CA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - AVT, Inc., (formerly Automated Vending Technologies) (PINKSHEETS: AVTC) (

AVT, Inc. showed off their new, proprietary vending technology with touch screen interfaces, which displays nutritional information in accordance with recent changes in compliance laws.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued new regulations -- titled FDA Section 4205 -- that call for mandatory disclosure in close proximity to each article of food -- showing the number of calories contained in the article (unless a prospective purchaser is able to examine the Nutrition Facts Panel before purchasing the article), or visible nutrition information provided at the point of purchase.

The new AVT designed systems contain a breakthrough interactive display with a bright, user-friendly touch pad, which provides all nutritional information in an easy to read format.

AVT's proprietary Smart Technology is also included in the new systems. This unique suite of advanced systems, hardware and software allows owners and operators to remotely track sales, spot trends, and receive customizable notifications and alerts.

"These new systems are truly the state-of-the-art in automated retailing and vending," states Shannon Illingworth, founder of AVT. "Tech-savvy people who love the Apple iPad or iPhone will appreciate our styling, innovation, technology, and user-friendly features."
