Cold Chain Last Mile Logistics Solutions – using passive cooling only

ifoodbag Are Experts In Temperature Controlled Logistics Using Only Passive Cooling

Our system is environmentally sustainable, cost efficient and gives our customers added values and flexibility. We see our solutions as revolutionary for the retail trade in general and for the online grocery players in particular, where the temperature-controlled logistical challenges are the biggest issues to solve

– the final mile challenge.


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.

    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:

    •Increased flexibility
    • Scalability
    • 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.
