Icon: Tiffin Lunch Box

A network of Tiffinwallahs has been functioning in a very efficient way for the last 120 years in India, recognised by management gurus as a best case of network management in the world; they will deliver 175,000 lunches (or “tiffin“) each day to offices and schools throughout Mumbai. The tin containers consists of a number of bowls, each containing a separate dish, held together in a frame. There is an error rate of one in every 8 million deliveries — simply amazing.
