For more than 60 years Girl Guides around Australia have proudly sold Girl Guide Biscuits in our communities to our families, friends, supporters and businesses. They are certainly an icon of Girl Guiding and a valuable symbol of our connection with the broader community.
Next year we will be launching an exciting new range of biscuits that are free from artificial additives, preservatives and flavours and importantly are palm oil free. There will be a selection of three biscuits, an ANZAC, a triple chocolate and gluten free lemon, lime and coconut biscuit. Each biscuit will be 50g and individually wrapped. Biscuits will be packaged in display boxes ready for sale in local communities. All packaging will be labelled Girl Guides so the biscuits will continue to be a reminder of Girl Guiding. The cardboard packaging is recyclable and printed with plant-based inks and the biscuit wrappers are also recyclable.
This range showcases our commitment to being responsible members of the community and our recognition that environmental sustainability is one of the most important issues currently facing the planet. To produce this new range has meant that we will not be offering the Trefoil biscuits in our 2020 campaign. While this may be disappointing for some members, the new range is aligned to our values and shows that we stand by what we say we believe in.
The Biscuit Ordering website will be ready at the end of January 2020 for orders to be placed during February. Deliveries will commence in May 2020.
We wish you and your families a wonderful festive season and look forward to an adventure filled 2020!
