In 2010, Autobar acquired Green Food Vending which significantly boosted sales and raised Autobars value share from 6% in 2010 to 20% in 2011. Green Food Vending concentrates on the sale of organic and fair trade products, which are very popular among UK consumers.
Vending value sales declined by a significant 20% in 2012 as a result of the ban on tobacco vending. Vending sales were already showing a decline in 2011, however, at a much slower rate of just over 1%. Tobacco vending sales made up quite a significant proportion of vending sales hence the steep decline in 2012.

Further merger and acquisition activity is to be expected throughout the forecast years.
