LAS VEGAS -- Nu-Health International <http://www.nu-health-intl.com>  LLC, a
new company led by two industry veterans, has created a line of
fruit-in-juice, packed in a transparent can-shaped container that can be
dispensed from any canned drink vending machine.

The see-through 12-oz. containers, engineered to display the fruit inside
and facilitate eating on the go, come with a peel-off lid, attached folding
spoon and snap-on resealable cap. The company has a patent pending for both
the can and the sealing process. 

Its current fruit-in-juice offerings are peaches, pineapples and mandarin
oranges, along with two fruit cocktails: mandarin orange and pear; and
pineapple, peach and pear. 

"No one has ever developed, created and brought to market a product like
this before," said Nu-Health president Dmitry Sharin. "The Nu-Health
products add healthy purchase options to machines that serve only sodas.
They create additional income sources for every vending operator. Plus, they
provide higher profit margins than sodas."

All of the fruits and juices meet FDA requirements and are laboratory-tested
for quality and consistency on a daily basis, according to Sharin. He said
Nu-health, based in Las Vegas, sources its fruit products directly from
growers in many countries around the globe, where it has support staff that
oversee the picking, sorting, production and packaging processes.
Nu-Health's primary distribution center is in Carson, CA.

"As orders come in, we even deliver the fruit cases direct to our
customers," said Sharin. "We have created a total vertical operation, from
picking to packing to delivery."

Nu-Health has developed a range of marketing materials to help operators
promote the new product to their customers.

Sharin is a 20-year vending industry veteran, as both an operator and
equipment supplier. He is also the president of Fructomat USA, which
manufactures and distributes a line of bag-in-box beverage dispensers
designed for the workplace market. | READ MORE

His partner in Fructomat and Nu-Health is vice-president of marketing Howard
Heller, who has been involved in the office coffee service equipment
industry for two decades. 

Nu-Health will exhibit its novel fruit cans at the National Automatic
Merchandising Association OneShow <http://www.namaoneshow.org>  in Las
Vegas, which runs April 24-26 at the Venetian-Sands Resort. It will be
located in booth #1640.
