I think that about covers it.
OP, short of coming up with ever more inventive ways to steal his lunch in the day and relocate it to the canteen with clever and heartwarming treasure trail clues to lead him there I can't think of any diplomatic way to solve this. There is a non-diplomatic solution in calling the feds (HR) and having them kaibosh the practice of eating at one's desk. It's technically a health and safety issue due to standing NHS advice on allergens and allergy sufferers, basically don't put them in the same room as one another. Doesn't matter if the food he eats is allergenic or not, it's the principle. The canteen exists for a reason. He'll know it was you though, and being brown he might blow you up after the fact.
