From Crop to Consumption

Subway’s new menu increases vegan choices and includes new sustainable salad box packaging

Vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and those looking to reduce their meat consumption now have even more choices at mealtimes, as Subway launch their new ‘Make Any 6” Sub a Wrap or Salad’ menu.

With all 6-inch subs, including two delicious plant-based options, now available to order as a wrap or salad, fans of the hugely popular Meatless Meatball Mariana or the newly named Plant Patty now have more choice than ever before. Customers can now get a Meatless Meatball Marinara on a bed of salad greens, or a Plant Patty in a wrap loaded with vegetables.

Subway’s sell-out Meatless Meatball Marinara sub recently won Best Vegan Sandwich at PETA’s 2020 Vegan Food Awards, which recognise the best-in-category meat-free food launches.

The new menu choices have launched alongside the introduction of new sustainable salad box packaging. Supporting the brand’s commitment to reducing its single plastic consumption, Subway has replaced their plastic salad bowls and lids with a new sustainable cardboard salad box, removing 461 tonnes of single use plastic from its supply chain across the UK and Ireland in the process.

The new salad boxes began their roll out across the UK from 30th September and are a continuation of Subway’s commitment to its Fresh CSR Agenda of serving guests sustainably, sourcing responsibly, and supporting communities.

The menu update also includes the launch of a handy new plant-based menu icon, making it easier for guests to identify which items on the menu are plant-based.

Customers can also now SubStack their plant-based sub for just 50p by adding in three plant based-friendly hash browns.
