Little Leaf Farms offering limited-edition 'Happy Desk Salad' kit

While much attention is paid to the future of work post-Covid, Little Leaf Farms has its sights set squarely on the future of office lunch. In a recent survey conducted by Opinium Research, the brand uncovered that three in four (76 percent) non-remote corporate workers are eating lunch at their desk at least half the time or more.

Sixty-eight percent of workers who take lunch at their desk indicate that they prefer eating lunch at their desk, citing that "it's convenient" (56 percent) and they "feel more productive" (43 percent) as their primary reasons.

"Somewhere along the lines the desk salad got seriously maligned and became the symbol of a less-than-stellar office lunch experience. We're here to change that perception. Little Leaf Farms is just as serious about leveling up lunchtime as we are about growing a longer-lasting, fresher, more sustainable lettuce," said Jeannie Hannigan, senior brand manager at Little Leaf Farms.

The survey also found that 73 percent of office workers plan to bring their own lunch to work as often or more often this year with the top motivator being that "it's healthier" (68 percent). Perhaps not surprisingly, Gen Z is especially likely to say they plan to bring lunch from home more often to save money (58 percent).

Helping those desk lunch devotees, Little Leaf Farms has created a Happy Desk Salad Kit containing everything needed to turn any desk lunch into a five-star dining event.

The limited-edition Little Leaf Farms Happy Desk Salad Kit includes:

  • Desk shade for private, idyllic lunchtime vibes
  • Desktop candelabra with three battery-operated candlesticks
  • Personal water bottle chiller
  • Custom placement with clearly marked spots for every desk lunch essential, which can easily be washed in the office kitchen sink
  • Fork, linen napkin and napkin ring
  • Little Leaf Farms Crispy Caesar Salad Kit packed with Little Leaf Farms Baby Crispy Green Leaf Lettuce, Garlic Croutons, Shredded Parmesan Cheese and Romano Caesar Dressing

The choice to dine deskside does still come with plenty of etiquette landmines and the survey indicates that the one biggest obstacle workers have when eating lunch at their desk is not the location, but meetings scheduled during this important time of day.
