For a lot of vegans this is really big news ! Pret has announced that they are going to be releasing plant based versions of four of their most popular sandwiches.
Due to launch in the coming weeks at Veggie Pret stores the company says that the new sandwiches will taste ‘just like the originals.’
According to Cosmopolitan, which broke the story, the details are still under wraps, but we will apparently find out very soon what is coming.
It will be interesting to see if Pret experiments with soya/seitan etc to produce fake meat. It would be a first for the company if it did.
Pret’s Global Head of Food Innovation, Hannah Dolan, told Cosmo : “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.
“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!”
