About Us

The Urban Bento was founded in 2015 by Annie and Yvonne - two lovely friends living the city life in Perth. Their shared passion for fresh food sparked the idea of providing lunchbox solutions for busy urbanites to eat well on the run.

Fast forward 3 years and The Urban Bento continues their journey Beyond the Box with Sem and Davina.


What does our slogan “Beyond the Box” mean?

The “Box” we refer to here is a metaphorical one. :)

We believe that urbanites all over the world are faced with the challenge of working and living in a fast-paced world, or what we call “The Box”. While many try to make daily tasks convenient and time efficient, not many aim to make them sustainable too.

Alternatives to single use plastics come in all shapes and sizes BUT does it fit your Urban lifestyle?

This is why we are here to help.

For years, we struggled to find eco-friendly and sustainable products that not only provided the convenience we needed but also the design and aesthetics that allowed us to express our individual styles.

How do we do it? 

We follow five rules when procuring our brands and products: 



In other words, we've done the homework so by shopping with us - your only challenge is to find the colour and design that fits your life and style.
