Subway has increased its vegan offering following the sell-out success of its meatless marinara sub.

The sandwich giant has launched a new ‘Make Any 6″ Sub a Wrap or Salad’ menu.

Subway says the menu is aimed at ‘vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and those looking to reduce their meat-consumption’ who now have ‘more choices at mealtimes’.

A spokesperson said: “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. 

“So you can now get your Meatless Meatball Marinara on a bed of salad greens, or Subway’s delicious Plant Patty in a wrap loaded with veggies. 

“Subway’s sell-out Meatless Merecognizerinara sub recently won Best Vegan Sandwich at PETA’s 2020 Vegan Food Awards. Hosted for 8th consecutive year, PETA’s Vegan Food Awards recognise best in category meat-free food launches.”

The chain added that it is swapping its salad packaging in a bid to become more sustainable, replacing its plastic salad bowls and lids with a new sustainable cardboard salad box.

It says this will remove 461 tonnes of single-use plastic from its supply chain across the UK and Ireland.
