Pret A Manger is to launch vegan versions of four of its most popular sandwiches and open a fifth Veggie Pret store.
The Vegan Classics range will consist of four reimagined sandwiches, baguettes and wraps that will be exclusively available at Veggie Pret stores.
Before revealing The Vegan Classics, the food-to-go chain has launched a push on social media, asking its followers “If you could make any classic Pret recipe vegan, which one would it be?”.
Pret will also be opening its fifth Veggie Pret store in Canary Wharf later this month. It will mark the first Eat site to be converted following Pret’s acquisition of the business earlier this year. It joins the existing line-up of Veggie Pret stores in Soho, Shoreditch, Exmouth Market and Manchester.
“Veggie Pret is a space where we’ve had a great opportunity to experiment with vegan and veggie food. It’s our mission to make it easier for customers to eat less meat, so we challenged ourselves to recreate the delicious flavours and textures of our meaty bestsellers, using only vegan ingredients,” said Hannah Dolan, global head of food innovation at Pret.
“We’re excited for everyone, (vegans and non-vegans alike), to try The Vegan Classics – and to see if they can tell the difference between the new vegan recipes and the originals!”
