Opinel and monbento Launch Limited-Edition, Sustainable On-the-Go Meal Kit

April 18, 2023

CHICAGO, Ill. – April 18, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Opinel USA is pleased to announce its collaboration with monbento and the launch of the monbento x Opinel On-the-Go Meal Kit. Made in France, the On-the-Go Meal Kit is practical for all activities from hikes and picnics in the great outdoors to everyday lunches.

The exclusive collaboration between these two French brands brings together Opinel’s award-winning Picnic+ Set and monbento’s best-selling MB Original Outdoor Lunch Box to create a smart and sustainable foodware solution.

Opinel’s Picnic+ Set eliminates the need for disposable cutlery with its ingenious design that utilizes the brand’s classic No.08 Folding Knife and interchangeable fork and spoon inserts, which slide into the folding knife and lock into place with the knife’s Virobloc® safety ring. For this exclusive collaboration, the Opinel No.08 Stainless Steel Folding Knife features a hornbeam handle showcasing a limited-edition topographic design, a nod to the mountainous regions Opinel and monbento hail from, printed on the handle with mustard yellow accents. The set also features a microfiber napkin/carrying case in a fresh colorway – anthracite and mustard.

monbento’s best-selling MB Original Bento Lunch Box features two tiered airtight compartments – each holding 16.9 fl oz – and is ideal for keeping meals perfectly organized. As with the Opinel No.08 Folding Knife, a topographic design unique to this collaboration can be found on the lid of the lunch box. Made with PBT, a high-quality plastic known for its durability and recyclability, this dishwasher and microwave-safe lunch box is perfect for everyday use.

The complete monbento x Opinel On-the-Go Meal Kit (MSRP: $94.95) includes:

  • Monbento MB Original Outdoor Lunch Box with two airtight containers (34 fl oz capacity)
  • Opinel Picnic+ Cutlery Set (fork and spoon attachments, microfiber napkin/carrying case)
  • Opinel Limited-Edition No.08 Stainless Steel Folding Knife

The monbento x Opinel On-the-Go Meal Kit is now available to purchase on opinel-usa.com
