Example of a lunch bag

With our lunch bag, we have created a change from the classic sandwich for you. During development, we took great care to create a balanced range with a clean label, i.e. without E-numbers, flavor enhancers and colorants. There is a daily changing offer with a salad including topping, a homemade dessert with fresh fruit and Focuswater as a drink.

The cost per lunch bag is 16 francs. Can be ordered via the order form, with a lead time of 48 hours (working days) before the event.


Homemade patisserie in the take-away box: delicious and a little healthy. Always sweet: the new dessert line from Centrino is also available to take away.

A surprise for a birthday party, Christmas or just because. They are crispy, fruity, airy, sweet and sour. They are also reduced in sugar and are real eye-catchers.

Prices per take-away box:

  • Box of 8 for CHF 32
  • Box of 4 for CHF 16.-

There are six seasonal varieties to choose from for each season. The take-away boxes are delivered frozen so that you can defrost the desserts flexibly at home.

You can order via the order form, and if you order by 2 p.m., you can collect the box from the Giardino (Building B, Level 0) between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. on the next working day.

(Ordering and delivery only possible from Monday to Friday, orders are accepted at weekends)
