Fresh Food & Drinks With A Warm Heart – La Gourmet 3R Pack To Go
The 2020 Natural Health & Good Health Readers’ Choice Awards saw La gourmet emerge as the winner in the category of Lunch Box & Tiffin Carrier. It was a hands down win, we say, for La gourmet 3R Pack To Go range comes with a double-wall design, which lowers the chances of temperature changes within the containers. It’s by far, the best in its kind for retaining the freshness of packed food and drinks. The brand’s Managing Director, Ms Jean Yeap stated recently, “At La gourmet, we’re proud of our Two-Tier Thermal Tiffin Carrier as that is the only thermal tiffin carrier in Malaysia and in the region. We simply love this product as it keeps your food hot and is also leakproof. A great solution for “take away hot food” for it is safe, clean and eco-friendly.
The renowned brand started developing 18/10 stainless bottles and marketing them as eco products in the market about 20 years ago, but the level of awareness among the public was low back then, according to Ms Jean. “Subsequently in 2010, we relaunched the 18/10 stainless steel bottles, ran eco campaigns to educate the public on the benefits of using sustainable products and the importance of our actions to preserve the planet’s resources. We even ran T.V. Advertisements on Asian Food Channel (AFC), focusing on 3R: Refill, Reuse and Reduce. All of these were intended to put it out there to the viewers that La gourmet is a brand that cares for them and the environment,” she shared.
Ms Jean felt glad and honoured to be presented the award in the 2020 Natural Health Readers’ Choice Awards, and thanked all La gourmet supporters for the trust and for choosing La gourmet products and entrusting the brand to care for their family.
“We are glad that our efforts in promoting the use of eco-living and sustainable products are showing results. We understand that we still have a long way to go, but at least our “RECYCLE, REFILL, REUSE” (3R Campaign) and our range of lunch boxes and tiffin carriers are slowly getting the awareness and attention,” she said.
With the core principle of “Conserve Energy”, and “On the go” this range of La gourmet products are suitable as people need to go to work, to school, to college or to travel. To provide healthy and sustainable solutions is what La gourmet has set out to fulfil, and as pointed out by Ms Jean, the brand is continuously doing its part to provide solutions to promote a healthy lifestyle while helping to preserve the environment.
What’s amazing to us is the fact that many Malaysians keep preferring 3R Pack To Go despite the fact that there are dozens of brands available for lunch boxes and tiffin carriers! Well, La gourmet has, after all, been in the market for 27 years all in, and is already long known for their quality products and just as importantly, it’s a brand with a “heart”.
“We have built “TRUST” over the 27 years as some of the products like the classic thermalware have been around 27 years, though the technology of construction has been upgraded. La gourmet provides “Assurance & Safety” and “Assurance of Quality” and we stand behind our guarantee. We build our brand around “Love and Gratitude” as a foundation, and we have been actively collaborating with The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) to build the skill development fund and the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) to save the turtles,” she revealed.
Although food freshness has always been important to most people, during these times of a pandemic, it has never been more crucial. It’s simple, the fresher your food, the less likely you’ll feel unwell due to tainted or stale food. Most of the exceptional Pack To Go products are double-walled, lowering the chances of temperature changes within the containers. This is better for retaining the freshness of packed food and drinks.
Ms Yeap encourages consumers to use La gourmet’s borosilicate glass bottle, as that is the purest as it does not leach chemicals or react especially if lemon water or infused water is stored. When it comes to ensuring the freshness of packed drinks, La gourmet also provides the option according to customers’ needs. The TRITAN bottles, for example, are for those who need a light and unbreakable bottle; it has been tested by third party laboratories that Titan is safe, BPA free and BPS Free. La gourmet Stainless Steel bottle is also another winning product, made of 304 stainless steel that is safe and durable. The Stainless Steel thermal bottles are suitable for both hot and cold drinks.
“La gourmet’s Borosilicate glass bottles are also designed to keep drinks fresher, while resisting chemical and acid degradation. Consumers don’t have to worry about chemical seeping into their water. It is safe, microwaveable, dishwasher safe and can store both hot or cold liquids,” Ms Yeap shared.
As an award-winning brand, La gourmet is constantly working on new product developments, whereby consumers can look forward to more quality sustainable products in the future. The products will be trendy, fun, modern and relevant for all ages – toddlers, children, millennials and working adults.
During this pandemic period when eating out may not be allowed, the 3R Pack To Go products can really help users in terms of food safety and freshness. “ Also, don’t you think they make great gifts for a loved one or neighbour, especially during these trying times? Imagine receiving a food tiffin, with food prepared with love, warm and fills not only your stomach but your heart too,” Ms Yeap deduced.
