ANZ trials edible coffee cups

A cup of coffee on Air New Zealand flights is now more than just a simple fix of caffeine.

It is also a vanilla-flavoured snack.

The airline is trialling an edible coffee cup in collaboration with local firm The Twiice company.

"The Twiice cup is leak-proof and will stay crisp at least as long as it takes to drink your coffee, and longer," the company says.

It is handmade from a biscuit base in New Zealand and uses no additives or preservatives.

"We've been working in partnership with innovative New Zealand company Twiice to explore the future of edible coffee cups. The cups have been a big hit with the customers and we've also been using the cups as dessert bowls," the airline said.

Air NZ said it recently made a move to plant-based cups for all its aircraft and lounges, which is expects will save around 15 million cups going to landfill each year.

It will continue exploring new 'innovative waste reduction measures.'
