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, 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 sealed. For ifoodbag® we recommend using an absorbing pad in the bottom of the bag to absorb the melted water. Utilising methods such as these makes both the bag and the box an excellent solution for transporting fresh produce such as fish and seafood.
