I don't think companies should force employees to take a lunch break.
As a former corporate executive, and now as a consultant, I know that workers are different, and maximum productivity occurs when they they have control over their schedule. All employees should have the option of taking a lunch break away from their desk—without being forced to. Some will welcome the break, while others would actually prefer to work during lunch, so that they can work at a more leisurely pace in the morning or afternoon.
