Automato, from Stoffels in Belgium, is a point-of-sale 'vending machine' with three boxes that dispense different cherry tomato varieties into paper bags.

Each box has its own hopper and can be operated separately, and consumers can choose one or more varieties – in one colour or a mix of red, orange and yellow.

The Automato is hygienic and interesting for the youngest shoppers, as it is designed to attract their interest in new vegetable varieties.

Each box of tomatoes measures 23.5cm x 51cm x 50cm, while the the total size, including all three boxes and a holder for the paper bags, measures 70cm x 130cm x 75cm.
