Our Story

We Are Mission-Based, Plastic-Free Lunchbox Company

Thinking back to our school years in India, we would use metal containers for everything!

From our pencil boxes to lunch boxes even our school bags! These same metal boxes stayed with us all through our school journey, proving to be a system of sustainability right up until we left.

Then, plastic was introduced.
It was lighter, more attractive and provided more options. But at what cost?

Certainly, it was cheaper! But it kept breaking and had to be replaced often. And what about its environmental impact and it’s a danger to our health?

We decided to heed the lessons of our past. We wanted something that was recyclable, durable and sustainable. We brought this concept to New Zealand, doing our part to protect our land and marine environments.

We started Meals in Steel.

We invite our customers to join our community and purchase our products whether they are worried about their health, their pocketbook or the planet. A journey toward new habits can begin anywhere.

We are delighted that our lunch containers have empowered tens of thousands of families to say good-bye to plastics at lunchtime. And by providing our earth-friendly lunch containers and accessories to help people green their habits at lunchtime, we hope to encourage them to move beyond using plastics in many other parts of their lives.
