It’s always good to hear about local businesses coming up with innovative ideas. So it was great to read about Indian restaurant Isaacs in Bennetts Hill, Birmingham, in this morning’s ever-informative Propel Newsletter.

Isaacs is offering to deliver specially designed lunchboxes to office workers at £7.95 a time. So rather than eating a soggy cheese and tomato sarnie hastily thrown together in the morning rush for lunch, workers can enjoy the likes of lamb rogan, shabji bhuna and dhal makhni at their desks.

I’m not sure if the aroma of lamb bhuna will go down well with everyone in the office, but it’s a great idea.

On the subject of innovative Birmingham foodies, have you seen that Peel & Stone bakery – the latest concept from those creative cats Soul Food Project – has joined Great Food Club?
