Vaya was founded by ex-Apple director Vashist Vasanthakumar, and you can immediately tell the company’s approach to doing things. The Tyffyn by Vaya is their first patented technology with world-precision engineering to ensure the end product meets an exceptional high quality.

“While the world around us has changed, the humble lunchbox, which most of us have grown up with, has not seen any significant changes in it. The lunchbox continues to be drab, boring, leaking and with inadequate heat retention. The idea was to make lunchboxes aspirational. Hence, the extensive technology and urbane design behind Vaya.” — Vashist Vasanthakumar, CEO of Vaya.

These are compliant with the most current European standards, which are RoHS (The Restriction of Harzadous Substances Directive) and SVHC (A Substance of Very High Concern).
