Let Pret a Manger know how much you love its plant-based options
Praise be to Pret! The British sandwich chain with a French-sounding name recently added a vegetarian Thanksgiving lunch sandwich to its year-round complement of meat-free wraps, soups and salads that it sells at its 100 or so stores in the US. With a little encouragement from you, we think Pret can do even more to help animals.
In addition to being a leader in animal welfare—having 100% Better Chicken Commitment standards and crate-free pork—Pret has long been a leader in plant-based foods.
In 2016 Pret opened a “Veggie Pret” pop-up store in London and the venture was so successful it opened up another shortly after. Now Veggie Pret is an established brand in England with five locations throughout the UK. But the concept has yet to travel across the Atlantic.
Plant-based foods are currently experiencing huge popularity in the US. Companies such as Burger King, Dunkin’, Subway, and White Castle have all recently added plant-based products such as the Impossible Burger and Beyond Meat sausage patty with tremendous success. It’s time to ask Pret to offer even more nutritious and sustainable plant-based options and even bring Veggie Pret here to the US!
The US has the highest individual meat consumption of any country in the world. Eating meat at these levels isn’t sustainable, for the planet, nor for animals because it leads to intensive farming—producing more meat by giving animals less room and time to grow. For the sake of our environment, our health and animals living in misery on factory farms, we have to #ReduceMeat.
Pret a Manger has proved time and time again that it listens to what its customers crave.
Send a note thanking Pret for offering its customers choice and urge it to bring Veggie Pret to the United States!
Subject: Thank you for offering more plant-based options
Dear Pret US,
Please keep the delicious meat-free sandwiches coming!
Your veggie Thanksgiving lunch sandwich is a step in the right direction but millions of Americans would like to see Pret US offer even more nutritious and sustainable plant-based options as permanent fixtures on menus. Plant-based foods are currently experiencing huge popularity in the US as people look for options that are good for the planet, good for health and prevent millions of animals from living lives of misery on factory farms.
Please bring Veggie Pret to the United States!
