The 103-year-old butcher shop, Izarzugaza, with three locations in Northern Spain, is making attempts to adopt modern technology while keeping traditions alive: They have an online shop selling meat and prepared items, as well as customer-facing multilingual touchscreens in the shops. But what truly sets them apart is their meat vending machine outside the store in Mundaka.
"We had to provide a service when the shop closes," Mikel Izarzugaza, the fourth generation owner, told El Mundo. So they acquired a refrigerated vending machine that uses elevators (no dropping that meat!) and the products change seasonally: "In summer pasta salads, we prepare and pack, in winter tongue in sauce or meatballs, sausages and burgers as well."
