Dinner pails, lunch boxes and thermoses – holding a special place in the memories of many – are trending again!

As bringing home-cooked food to work and school becomes more prevalent among consumers, so too does their interest in lunchboxes and thermoses.  

While consumers’ interest in health and nutrition has been on the rise for a decade, the current situation has accelerated this trend. As home cooking amplifies, along with increased interest in sophisticated coffee brewing and smoothie making techniques, both adults and children gravitate towards attractive, functional containers that can carry these homemade dishes and drinks into the workplace or school environment.

Combining developing technologies and new product materials, the food transportation vessels of the past have emerged in modern forms and in line with today’s technology and consumer expectations. Below, you can find a brief summary of some of the products and manufacturers operating in this area.

Both children and adults are using durable, colourful lunchboxes and thermoses. While the adult versions may be more sleek or stylish, whimsical designs that appeal to children are also coming to the forefront.
