NEWS: Airline trials edible cup

An airline's trialling an edible coffee cup, made of biscuit, which is vanilla flavoured and leak-proof.  

Air New Zealand says it can also double as a dessert bowl. The company was previously using compostable, plant-based cups, but wanted to remove them from landfill. The airline serves more than eight million cups of coffee each year. Customer experience manager Niki Chave said: "We've been working in partnership with innovative New Zealand company 'twiice' to explore the future of edible coffee cups, which are vanilla flavoured and leak-proof. "The cups have been a big hit with the customers who have used these and we've also been using the cups as dessert bowls."
