Juhi Gupta was trying to balance being a wife, working for a fortune 100 Company, maintaining her health, staying fit, and motherhood. After leaving her corporate life to focus on growing her family, her mornings were spent making and packing healthy lunches for her kids‚ in plastic containers. She looked high and low for containers that could withstand the journey to the cafeteria without breaking or spilling, but all of the best options were made from chemical heavy plastic. Knowing that these chemicals could leach into her childrens' food, she knew she had to find a better option.

So she created Frego, an innovative alternative to plastic food storage containers! These containers are composed of three pieces that optimize, simplify, and create an eco-friendly option for storing food. Frego containers can last much longer than traditional plastic alternatives, and are also safe to use in the dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, and oven without the leakage and absorption of toxic chemicals! Frego cares about doing what's best for the earth, and for you.

Non-Plastic Food Storage

Frego is offering a safer solution to the dreaded overflowing tupperware cabinet. How is Frego different? Frego glass food storage containers are made from borosilicate glass, unlike the regular plastic food storage containers that are made from petroleum. The glass won't leach chemicals into your food, and is far more durable than plastic options. Most plastic containers are commonly single use, or simply don't last more than a few uses. According to Columbia University, only around 9% of plastic food storage containers are even recycled! Borosilicate glass has traditionally been used in laboratories and wine tastings due to the fact that it doesn't absorb or release chemicals. It has extremely low solubility, which keeps your food free from contamination, and it can withstand double the amount of temperature changes than regular glass. Since they're so durable, Frego's containers can last decades if not an entire lifetime, which means less waste for the planet and more cash in your wallet! This woman owned business doesn't just stop with creating high quality products! They also partner with The Lunchbox Fund! The Lunchbox Fund is an organization in South Africa that focuses on bringing nutritional meals to preschoolers in vulnerable communities all over the country. Frego is committed to creating a safer and healthier world, so they donate 1% of their profits to the Lunchbox Fund's charitable causes.
