Black + Blum launches Recipe Book for Lunch Box inspiration, with charity tie-up

Black + Blum the creators of premium food and drink on-the-go products, have launched a new recipe book. “Let’s Do Lunch Box”, a

hardback book developed together with publisher Dorling Kindersley, features 82 recipes in full colour. The book is designed to inspire consumers to make tasty meals, be they lunch, breakfast or snacks, to take with them in their Black + Blum product of choice. Nick Cornwell, managing

director commented: “We hope our retail partners will list the book and feature it alongside our lunch boxes.

Giving consumers inspiration through the pages of the book, will make them more likely to buy a lunch box and the book too. This is something that will be particularly relevant once we exit lockdown and start the return to work. It is a book that really underlines our credentials in the food and drink on-the-go sector, by showing people how to get the most out of our well-designed products”. As part of the company’s sustainability commitment, 5% of the sales revenue from every book sold will be donated to Black + Blum’s new charity

partner City Harvest London. This is a charity that


surplus food and gets it safely to the most vulnerable in society, thereby avoiding food waste.

Dan Black, founder and lead designer added: “We are thrilled that we are going to be a small part of the great work being done by City Harvest London.”

Hobblers, decided to take on the Rainy Day Trust’s Mad March Million’ as we attempted to reach 10,000 steps every day in March. The distance is equivalent to 6 marathons in 31 days. This is a worthy cause and one we definitely wanted to jump on board with and show our support. The Rainy Day Trust provides the most amazing support and is a lifeline to people and their families who require much- needed help during hard times. Collectively, Catrin Jones (deputy editor), Ali

Farrell (advertising manager), Dawn Tucker (journal manager), and Fiona Russell Horn (group managing editor) tackled 10,000 steps each per day to raise vital funds. Rain or shine we got our walking shoes on and stepped away from our desks for much- needed exercise and fresh air!
