Pret A Manger has launched its Christmas sandwich range – including its first-ever vegan festive sandwich.

Available now, the Christmas Lunch and Veggie Christmas Lunch sandwiches will be joined by the vegan sandwich, the Very Merry Christmas Lunch.

Pret’s Vegan Christmas Sandwich, priced £3.50, combines grilled carrots, spinach and a vegan stuffing on granary bread, which is finished with a port & orange cranberry sauce and a handful of caramelised pecans and crispy onions.

Its Veggie Christmas Lunch Sandwich, also priced £3.50, combines chunks of roasted butternut squash, pesto and rocket, served with yoghurt & mayo dressing on granary bread.

The Christmas Lunch Sandwich contains slices of British free-range turkey breast on granary bread with a dash of port & orange cranberry sauce, which is served with pork stuffing and priced at £3.75.

Fifty pence from the sale of each Christmas sandwich will be donated to the Pret Foundation Trust to help the homeless.

Pret is aiming to tap the growing vegetarian and vegan market after opening its third Veggie Pret outlet in Islington, London, in October.
