Zimlites Pty Ltd, exhibiting with GGDA-SMME (Hangar 6, Stand W11), is promoting the magic lunchbox, which is essentially a flameless heating kit that heats up food in two to five minutes without even using electricity.
A chemical reaction is activated with water inside the box, resulting in the creation of sufficient heat to produce hot food. The box is safe, portable and easy to carry around without spilling its contents. It is said to have a wide range of users – from school children to soldiers in the field – saving energy and time. The technology was developed in conjunction with Afro-Zonke Projects and Investments Pty Ltd, which specialises in chemicals and water treatment and sanitation.
