Biscotti goes compostable

The Great British Biscotti Co has launched two new plant-based, gluten-free options and home-compostable packaging.

The biscotti range includes sweet and savoury flavours from Chocolate Orange to Cheddar & Fennel, and the new variations are Dark Belgian Chocolate & Cranberries and Almond, and Hazelnut & Orange. Made using a secret flour blend and replacing dairy fat with coconut oil, all flavours now come in compostable packing.

A new twin-pack baton portfolio includes a Triple Chocolate, a Simply Almond, and a White Chocolate Cranberry & Pistachio biscotti.

Owner Paul Rostand says: “The British Craft Food movement is growing like never before, a foodie renaissance born from an insatiable craving for best-in-class ingredients, constant innovation and recipe integrity. As an ambitious specialist bakery in Dorset, we’re proud to respond to the growing concerns of deserving food minorities, (vegans and coeliacs) whose calls for more tailored recipe decks should never result in having to settle for underwhelming flavours and textures. As for compostable packaging, we believe everyone has a responsibility to reduce their litter trail and leave the planet as they found it.”
