New Zealand's national carrier is introducing coffee cups you can eat.

Air New Zealand say they are trialing an edible biscotti coffee cup.

The cups are vanilla-flavoured, and can withstand the heat of coffee without melting.

The company says: "We're always looking for ways to reduce waste on board".

The cup is handmade in New Zealand in small batches.

The Twiice company - which manufactures the cups - says it only uses real ingredients, free from additives and preservatives.

"The Twiice cup is leakproof and will stay crisp at least as long as it takes to drink your coffee, and longer", it adds.

Back in 2017, Air New Zealand introduced a programme to recycle paper coffee cups used on-board its domestic services.

This was set to divert 60 tonnes of cups from landfill every year.

The carrier said that previously, there had not been access to a recycling plant able to process at the scale the airline required.

However a new facility was opened in Auckland.

The airline is also known for making headlines with its eye-catching safety videos - the latest of which was used during the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
