Each GoPicnic meal box is packed with palate-pleasing foods from premium brands. Plus, all of GoPicnic’s delicious foods are made with clean ingredients, which means they contain no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), no added monosodium glutamate (MSG), and no artificial flavors or colors. GoPicnic’s high-quality ingredients are clearly labeled on the packaging of each box lunch, so even people with special diets, including all-natural, gluten-free, kosher, vegetarian, and vegan, can enjoy GoPicnic boxed lunches when they’re on the go.
Founder and CEO Julia Stamberger first launched GoPicnic in November 2006, serving up a shelf-stable meal box solution to the costly fresh food service available for purchase onboard major U.S. airlines. Stamberger’s ready-to-eat box lunch concept enabled airlines to offer quality, in-flight food options that reduced waste and required zero prep time. The airlines were also able to increase efficiency and improve customer satisfaction with GoPicnic boxed meals.
The success of the ready-to-eat boxed lunches and meals with onboard airline clients led the way for GoPicnic’s growth into new markets. In addition to airlines, GoPicnic has created meal boxes for hotels, tourism, corporate events, and college and camp food service programs. GoPicnic’s Care Packages debuted in May 2010, which allowed consumers to send flavorful food boxes to faraway family and friends. In January 2011, GoPicnic introduced eight new ready-to-eat boxed lunches for the retail market, which are available at nationwide grocery, specialty, and mass merchandise stores, as well as online.
