Meringue company Flower & White is to supply hundreds of Virgin Atlantic flights.
Treats from the Shropshire-based business will be available on Virgin Atlantic’s international flights through in-flight concessionaire 3Sixty Duty Free.
The company’s Raspberry Meringue Bar, which now forms part of Virgin Atlantic’s inflight Gastro Movie Box, had been supplied to Thomas Cook Airlines before the company’s collapse in September.
Flower & White was launched by husband and wife team Brian and Leanne Crowther from a garden shed where they would separate eggs by hand. The business now operates from a 13,000 sq ft premises and uses 200,000 eggs a week. It has the capacity to produce a million meringues a day.
“Being with a hugely popular airline such as Virgin is a brilliant step for us and it’s great for us to know that passengers on all Virgin Atlantic flights are being able to taste our products,” said Brian Crowther.
“People will be able to taste how good our meringue bar while on their trip and our hope is that they return home and see what else we have to offer.”
