You can buy your meat of choice; well from a vending machine.
The government has put to public notice until May a revision to the current regulations on animal products to enable a through the internet of things (IOT) a the sale of beef and pork products, among others, sealed in a container through vending machines.
Currently, to sell meat, one has to have an electric freezer, refrigerator, display counter and scales among other things.
The revision will remove this obligatory installation and instead entrust the IOT to regulate the necessary environment for meat preservation, and sales through real-time checks on temperature, shelf-life and other necessary information.
It also will simplify the licensing process.

Through the automated system, meat can be sold at a price 20 percent cheaper, according to Nonghyup.
