Pret A Manger has ditched its additional charge for plant-based milk alternatives.

In addition, the brand has added oat milk to its offerings, across all stores.

This means customers can opt for oat and rice-coconut milk, as well as soy milk in their barista prepared hot and cold drinks.

Vegan Pret 

The change is part of Pret’s January food introductions. As well as introducing oat milk, the brand has launched a vegan croissant in all its UK stores. The Very Berry Croissant is filled with sweet berry compote and topped with sugar.

“Over the past couple of years we’ve worked hard to bring new vegan and veggie options to our menu. The launch of The Vegan Classics in Veggie Pret has been a real success but we knew from talking to our customers that it was time to bring more options to the breakfast menu,”  

Pret’s Global Head of Food Innovation, Hannah Dolan, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“The Very Berry Croissant is just the beginning – we are looking forward to sharing more plant-based innovations with customers in 2020.”
