Charlie's Cookies with finger lime for Qantas

Qantas passengers will now get a taste of some of Australia’s native food ingredients thanks to new additions to Qantas’ in-flight menu.

Australian food company, Charlie’s Cookies, is now producing shortbread using native Australian finger lime for Qantas domestic flights.

The finger lime shortbread joins the new Byron Bay Cookie ‘Butterburst’ cookie with native Davidson Plum also made for Qantas.

The finger lime and Davidson Plum in both biscuits are supplied by up-and-coming Australian native food company, The Australian Superfood Co.

Australian Superfood Company Founder and Managing Director, Hayley Bliden, said using native Australian ingredients is important to help celebrate Australian food.

“Now, more than ever, our local growers need to reach a larger, captive audience and this has given them the opportunity to do so,” Bliden said.

“[The shortbread biscuits] give international tourists a taste of Australia but also show Australian travellers the amazing flavours available in their own backyard”.

Both Charlie’s Cookies finger lime shortbread and Byron Bay Cookies butterburst cookie are available now on Qantas domestic flights until September 2018.
