VioLife’s vegan alternatives to cheese launch in new Pret a Manger sandwich creations
In time for Veganuary, Violife has announced the launch of two delicious new vegan sandwiches, available in Pret A Manger stores across the UK from 11th January 2023.
For the first time ever, Violife’s 100-per-cent vegan alternatives to cheese will feature at Pret A Manger, giving more options to vegans, flexitarians or those looking to try new tastes and make a difference for the planet, as part of the leading sandwich shop chain’s new 2023 menu.
Based in Thessalonica, Greece, Violife has been producing 100-per-cent vegan, non-dairy foods since the 1990s. The Violife collection of delicious alternatives to cheese and Cocospread are free from all allergens (dairy, lactose, soya and gluten) and preservatives.
Delivering on flavour
Launching with a kick, the Spicy No’duja Toasted Focaccia includes mushroom No’duja, red pesto, red pepper, and fresh basil leaves, accompanied by Violife’s Smoky Cheddar Slices in a rosemary focaccia ready to be toasted by Pret’s chefs for a delicious warming lunch.
Those looking for a plant-based alternative to the classic flavours they love without compromising on taste or texture could instead opt for the Plant Based Ploughman’s Baguette. The crispy baguette includes Violife’s vegan alternative Smoky Cheddar Slices with spicy chipotle ketchup and Pret pickle chutney, finished with roasted tomatoes, sliced red onions and a salad mix.
Both sandwiches include Violife’s Smoky Cheddar Flavour Slices with a hickory smoky rind that promises to always deliver on flavour. Perfect for sandwiches that meet all dietary needs and lifestyle choices, like all Violife products, these Smoky Cheddar Slices are 100-per-cent vegan and free from dairy, lactose, soya, gluten and preservatives.
“More options for all dietary requirements”
“We’re excited to announce that Pret A Manger’s new 2023 menu will include Violife’s vegan alternatives to cheese in two new vegan products,” remarked Simon Lawrence, Head of Violife Professional, Northern Europe. “100-per-cent plant based, the tasty Violife Smoky Cheddar Slices mean all Pret stores will have more options for all dietary requirements when on the go or grabbing a bite to eat with friends, whilst enjoying the delicious tastes and textures they expect from Pret’s range.”
The Spicy No’duja Toasted Focaccia and Plant Based Ploughman’s Baguette will be available in selected Pret A Manger stores across the UK from January 11th 2023.
