First Place | Kadeya
Kadeya is the world's first closed loop beverage vending system. Our patent-pending kiosk for the first time ever washes, sanitizes, inspects, and refills bottles, combining a bottling plant with a dishwasher and a soda fountain in a unit the size of a vending machine. Kadeya's smart bottling station forward AND reverse vends reusable, digitally identifiable bottles, generating a first-to-market data asset to approximate a bike sharing or Uber model for beverage consumption. Kadeya attributes to the individual end-user specific consumption patterns, providing full beverage supply chain transparency from ingredients down to the user and covering climate, water, and health insights.
