Pret A Manger is replacing its meatball wrap with a vegan alternative following ‘crazy’ demand. 

The high-street chain launched a meat-free version of its classic Swedish Meatball Hot Wrap earlier this year, as part of its new vegan range for Veganuary

The vegan option is now a permanent feature on Pret’s menu. It is made up of ‘chunky vegan meatballs and flavored with garlic and herb on a layer of red tapenade, chipotle ketchup, and red onions’.

‘Customers have gone crazy’

Guy Meakin is the UK Trading Director at Pret. In a statement sent to PBN, he said: “I’m thrilled that we have been able to add a hot vegan item to our already robust vegan range which customers have gone crazy for this Veganuary. 

“At Pret, we’ve never seen a new product come in and shift our best sellers list, and to see it during a lockdown and in less than three weeks says a lot.”

Pret A Manger also debuted a slew of other vegan options last month. These are available at regular Pret stores as well as Veggie Pret outlets.
