YOUR FINAL MILE SOLUTION
that is reusable, recyclable and sustainable.
The ifoodbag system ensures that the cold chain stays intact
– using passive cooling only.
We are passionate about being an environmentally sustainable final mile solution provider.
We always add value and flexibility for our customers and help them create new opportunities.
We have developed a 100% paper thermal bag – the ifoodbag®. This plastic-free paper bag consists of two moisture protection barriers and an insulating thermo-protecting middle layer. It outperforms all plastic thermal bags available in stores today.
We have developed a unique, stackable EPP-box – the alvobox®. The high R-value for the EPP-material together with the logistical benefits that we have built in, makes this box unique and one of a kind. Its waist – “alvo” in Latin – makes it stackable inside each other when emptied. A simple but revolutionary feature.
ifoodbag is an early-stage startup company with the mission to set a new standard for cold chain last mile deliveries. The company was founded in 2013 and is currently owned by several private investors. Other financing includes innovation loans from Almi Företagspartner and a substantial contribution from the European Commission within the EASME Horizon 2020 program.
ifoodbag introduces two Click & Collect concepts using passive cooling only. The retailer can prepare online orders in-store well in time or install lockers equipped with the cost efficient and hassle-free alvobox®.
The concept Unattended home deliveries of groceries is launched. The combination of alvobox®, ifoodbag® and the optimal type and quantity of passive cooling, creates new business opportunities and builds end customer’s loyalty.
A second size of alvobox® is added, 52L, with the same strong features as its larger sibling. It’s lightweight and easy to pack and handle. The size and shape makes it ideal for flexible final mile deliveries of temperature sensitive goods.
Bengt Baron is appointed Chairman of the Board.

The ifoodbag® system keeps the cold chain intact. The ifoodbag® is a recyclable paper thermal bag that combines minimal condensation with thermo-protection capabilities. The alvobox® is a durable, stackable and recyclable thermal box. They can be used separately or combined in a passive cooling system. The performance can be enhanced by using an optimized amount of cooling elements such as chilling shields or gelpacks.
There are several factors that affect how long the goods will stay cold.
Our experts will analyze your case and suggest how you can optimize the setup by using a combination of bags, boxes and passive cooling elements to meet end-temperature requirements in the most cost-effective way.
Several factors will have an effect on the temperature development:
• Load factor
• Starting temperature
• Ambient temperature
• Number of hours in transit
• Using a regular bag or ifoodbag®
• Using a regular logistical box or alvobox®
• Using passive cooling elements
Every business is different, but we have plenty of cases where we have helped customers solve their last mile delivery challenges. Improvement areas we have been a part of include:
• Storage efficiency
• Third party logistic set up
• Unbroken cold chain
• Unattended home deliveries
Yes, you can. However, over time the frozen products in contact with chilled products will have a freezing effect.
Yes! The bag is made from paper and can be recycled as paper packaging.
The ifoodbag® protects both hot and cold products. With hot or warm food there are, however, some condensation factors to take into account.
Yes, thay can. Many times. Exactly how many will depend on the system set-up.
Sort and recycle ifoodbag according to your national policy. In Sweden, for example, the ifoodbag® should be recycled as paper packaging (“Pappersförpackningar”) and alvobox® as rigid plastic.
The ifoodbag® /ipharmabag® comes in six standard sizes and alvobox® in two standard sizes. More size options can be offered for larger orders.
Yes, for larger orders you can have a customized print or logo on the ifoodbag® or alvobox®.
Yes, you can. The alvobox® is completely dense. For ifoodbag® we recommend using an absorbing pad in the bottom of the bag to absorb the melt water. This keeps the cooling energy in the bag and all goods away from water. It is an excellent solution for transporting fish and seafood.
We always start with a meeting where we go through your logistical set-up and discuss the problem you are trying to solve. Thereafter we present possible solutions.
