Although this is generally a list of things people around the world eat in offices, it would be remiss not to point out at least one country where workers rarely, if ever, stay in the office to eat lunch or eat it at their desks. In Brazil, food is just not consumed in places not meant for meals. In other words, Brazilians don’t eat on the go (they usually don’t drink coffee on the go either), and even if they’re simply buying a sandwich or having a juice, Brazilians will stand around until they are finished — even at street food carts. Thus, lunch breaks are long and most employees opt to go out. Rice and beans are staples in the country, and are usually eaten with meat or eggs, salads, and farofa (toasted cassava flour).

Italy


A few years ago, a study in Italy found that 74.3 percent of people ate their lunch at home. How is this possible? Many people work in small towns or villages (and less than half of women work paying jobs), and other employees are given a lunch break (pausa pranzo) every day between 1:30 and 3 p.m., which sometimes extends as late as 3:30 or 4.

For those choosing to eat at the office, some companies or buildings contain a tavola calda, or “hot table,” where workers line up for premade food like roasted meats and salads. Workers short on time might instead opt for pizza al taglio, where slices are cut into rectangular pieces, often with two equal-sized pieces that are sandwiched together for portability. Recently, the schiscetta (meaning “to press or pack together”) has become popular for employees who wish to eat at their desks. It’s basically the Italian form of a boxed lunch.
