The Best Freezable Lunchboxes

Feb 06, 2023by Gabby - F&F

Finding the right lunch box or bag to fit all your fave treats in, is already hard enough, without the added bulk of an ice pack. But, without an ice pack, we risk keeping things fresh, cool and end up swapping foods around, which may compromise our health choices. So what's the solution? Let us introduce you to PackIt. This clever company, has developed freezable cooler bags with a unique patented technology that allows your lunch and goodies to stay cool until you need them. 

Let's dive a little deeper to see how this brand came to be, how their eco freeze technology works, and of course — the range!

How PackIt Started?

Meet Melissa, a mum and the founder of PackIt. As a busy mum of three little ones, Melissa's aim was to ensure her kids get to school with a fresh and nutritious lunch. To her surprise, she found that her expensive ice packs were causing more harm than good (mushy blueberries) and the ice packs sometimes never even made it home. That't when she thought, there had to be a better way! So she asked herself, "why can't the bag BE the icepack? It would not only simplify the lunch making process but reduce a lot of unnecessary waste."

So Melissa got creating, the first freezable PackIt prototype was born using materials from her shower curtain, some safety pins, four icepacks, and some pleading with her dry cleaner. Pretty clever right? Since then, the innovation has continued to prosper, making hectic days, that bit easier!

PackIt's Eco Freeze Technology

So what exactly is this eco freeze technology? PackIt is the only foldable, freezable bag that keeps food and drinks cool for hours—no ice packs needed. Its secret? Patented cooling technology that's built into the walls of the bag. How cool is that? (No pun intended).

So how does it work?

  1. Fold It: The Freezable Lunch Bag folds up neatly to the size of a thick book. It secures with a handy velcro tab for compact storage.
  2. Freeze It: The entire bag goes in your freezer overnight (12 hours) to activate its built-in freezable gel. By morning, the walls of the bag will be completely frozen and ready to chill just like a fridge.
  3. Expand, Pack & Go: Fill your Freezable Lunch Bag with food and drinks just before you leave home. Enjoy!
