Subway to test two new vegan meat options in select UK stores

Subway, which will be testing new meaty vegan options until next month, says it is “proud” to offer a wide range of plant-based options.

Subway is testing two new vegan meat options for Veganuary, including plant-based steak and chicken tikka sandwiches.

The TLS (Tastes. Like. Steak.) Will be tested in 350 Metro stores in the south of England, while the TLC Tikka (Tastes.Like.Chicken.) will be tested in select stores in the UK and Ireland.

Vegan meat options, which will be on some menus from today through February 15, are available as a 6-inch, foot-long sub, as well as a salad or wrap.

Vegan meat for everyone

In a press release sent to Vegan food and life, Mays Elansari, UK & Ireland Marketing Manager at Subway, said: “Our new plant-based TLC Tikka and TLS taste so delicious that vegans, flexitarians and non-vegans will love them!

“At Subway, we pride ourselves on having one of the widest, most flavorful lines of plant-based choices, without any compromise on flavor or taste, to provide even more choice for our customers.”

‘Really happy’

Toni Vernelli, Global Head of Communications and Marketing at Veganuary, added: “We are so excited that Subway is adding even more plant-based options to their menu in January with the Veganuary Special, TLC Tikka and Trial of TLS

“Having lots of tasty, plant-based choices to try out makes eating vegan a little easier and a lot more enjoyable. “
