Air New Zealand is trialling edible coffee cups on its flights and in its lounges in effort to reduce waste

Air New Zealand has confirmed that it is trialling the use of vanilla-flavoured, edible coffee cups on its flights and on the ground as one initiative in its plans to reduce unnecessary waste.

The leakproof cups, that also double as an edible dessert bowl, have been introduced as part of a partnership with innovative New Zealand company twiice. They are produced from wheat flour, sugar, egg and vanilla essence and are described by the airline as an “edible biscotti coffee cup”, and the manufacturer has also developed chocolate flavour and gluten-free varieties. Sustainability is becoming an increasingly essential aspect of business strategy and more and more customers are demanding that businesses develop practices that take into account ecological, social and economic considerations.
