Cox & Co takes to the skies with Virgin Atlantic

Single origin chocolate brand, Cox & Co, is all set for take off with a new contract to supply Virgin Atlantic.

Joining Virgin’s luxury in-flight food offering, Cox & Co has secured a six-month contract with the prominent airline, supplying 25g bars of its Bee Pollen & Honey flavour chocolate bars.

Crafted from the finest Colombian cacao and blended with some of nature’s finest offerings to create unique flavour combinations, Cox & Co hit the headlines this year as it launched the first paper flow wrap packaging for a UK chocolate brand. Now it will become a fixture on Virgin Atlantic’s onboard complimentary menu.

Virgin Atlantic’s passengers will be able to enjoy Cox & Co’s 25g Bee Pollen & Honey bars on all flights from this month. The deliciously rich dark chocolate bars contain 60% cacao and are blended with honey and a sprinkling of bee pollen for the right balance of sweet and bitter flavours.

“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,” explains Gavin Cox, founder of Cox & Co.

“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,” adds Gavin.

The high-grade paper flow wrap has a 65% lower climate impact than plastic wraps and is fully biodegradable, reducing Cox & Co’s carbon footprint by minimising the need for secondary packaging.

Cox & Co’s mission is to create delicious chocolate that is truly different, made with care and sustainability in mind. Working with Colombia’s Luker Chocolate estate, Cox & Co invests in farmers, communities and sustainable farming methods to produce chocolate that’s as ethical as possible.
