“I don’t need any snacks to get through a long-haul flight” - said no passenger ever.
Whether you’re flying three hours to New Zealand, nine hours to Singapore, or 13 hours to Los Angeles, at some stage your stomach is going to call out for a mid-flight treat.
Although most airlines have a selection of snacks on board, if you prefer your goodies to have organic, gluten-free or vegan on the label, it’s worth stocking up before you board your flight.
Check out the list below and roll your wheelie bag straight to the Australian Produce Store at the International Terminal to pick up a selection of healthy treats for your overseas journey.
Loving Earth Chocolates
Not all chocolates are created equal, and the Loving Earth range proves the point.
While Loving Earth is made in Australia, they source cacao from the Ashaninka community in Peru, ensuring the chocolate is plant-based, certified organic and ethically made.
The United Nations agree too, and recently awarded the growers the Equator Prize for their efforts to reduce poverty through conservation and sustainable practice.
