More Consumers Brown-Bagging Lunch

workplace accessory these days, according to a new study from
market research firm the NPD Group. Indeed, weekday lunches toted
from home reached a new high in 2007 among adults 18 and older, 8.5
billion of which carried brown-bag lunches last year. More than
half of these lunches are consumed at the workplace, and most often
at the eater’s desk or workstation.
