Sustainable chocolate onboard Virgin Atlantic 

Virgin Atlantic is serving sustainable chocolates from chocolatier Cox & Co.

The 25g Bee Pollen & Honey bars contain 60% Colombian cacao, blended with honey and a sprinkling of bee pollen.

Cox & Co uses paper flow wrap packaging, which has a 65% lower climate impact than plastic wraps and is fully biodegradable.  

Gavin Cox, Founder of Cox & Co, said: “This is a huge moment for Cox & Co to have our bars onboard Virgin Atlantic. As an independent chocolate brand, this opens up the opportunity to get our chocolate into the hands of a whole new customer base, but it also debuts our 100% recyclable paper flow wrap, which is the first of its kind in the UK confectionery market.

“We believe this new partnership with Virgin Atlantic is a perfect match, with our collective drive towards sustainability and the brands’ actions to reduce our environmental impact. Our paper flow wrappers offer an eco-alternative, providing a recyclable wrapping that reduces the amount of waste for the airline.”
