The National Bulk Vendors Association is a nonprofit trade association of bulk vendors, founded in 1950. The NBVA lobbies for legislation that will help bulk vendors; for instance, NBVA worked through the Coin Coalition to support the United States dollar coin.

The NBVA is dedicated to addressing the needs of its members, ensuring the stability of the industry as a whole by promoting individual growth and success. Objectives are accomplished through pooling the resources of industry professionals and working with government agencies that have a direct effect on bulk vending. The association tirelessly works to these ends while never losing sight of product safety and the highest standard of business ethics.[citation needed]

The National Bulk Vendors Association is a national ot-for-profit trade association comprising operators, distributors, manufacturers, and suppliers of bulk vending equipment and products. Our[who?] members are responsible for the vast majority of business done in our industry.[citation needed] The NBVA conducts all business through an Executive Board and committee leaders on an elected and volunteer basis. The NBVA’s goal is to strengthen and promote the bulk vending industry and secure the viable future of the bulk vending industry.

The National Bulk Vendors Association is a national, and in some cases international organization dedicated to bulk vending. Bulk Vending is the sale of unsorted confections, nuts, gumballs, toys and novelties (in capsules) selected at random and dispensed generally through non-electrically operated vending machines. Bulk vending is a separate segment of the vending industry from full line vending i.e., the snack and soda vending industries and involves different products and strategies. Bulk vending represents less than 1% of the total vending industry.

The National Bulk Vending Headquarters is located in Scottsdale, Arizona.
