Subway kicks off 2020 with new launch…the Meatless Meatball Marinara

 It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… following huge guests demand and successful trials, Subway has launched an equally delicious, meatless version of its classic Sub – behold the Meatless Meatball Marinara!

The brand has turned its most iconic Sub, ‘The Meatball Marinara’ into a plant-based option, so now all guests – whether they’re completely meat-free, or are simply looking for a plant-based alternative – can make their lunch exactly what they want.  

The juicy vegan Meatless Meatballs are packed with all the delicious flavour of the tasty original, and come smothered in mouth-watering original Marinara sauce. Guests need not miss out on the melted, dairy cheese either, as the Meatless Meatball Marinara is topped with oozing slices of melted vegan cheese.

The Meatless Meatball Marinara joins an already enticing line up of meat-free options at Subway, including the Vegan Sub, Vegan Salad and the cravable Hash Browns. Why not customise your Meatless Meatball Marinara with one of Subway’s best-selling vegan sauces, including Garlic Aioli, Sriracha Hot Chilli or Sweet Onion, and of course any combination of the crunchy salads too.

Toni Vernelli, head of communications international at Veganuary, said of the new launch: “Veganuary is creating a new wave of consumers with strong ethics and a big appetite! This is a real opportunity for businesses to improve and expand their plant-based offerings for the growing meat-free audience. We’re delighted that Subway has risen to this challenge – helping people who are avoiding meat to still enjoy the food they love – we can’t wait to try their new Meatless Meatball Marinara!”

Colin Hughes, country director Subway UK & Ireland, said: “We’re always shaking up our menu at Subway as we are constantly innovating. Our guests wanted a meatless version of our iconic Sub, so we made it for them! The Meatless Meatball Marinara is equally as delicious as the original, and a tempting choice for all our guests, whether they are looking for a plant-based alternative, or simply want to enjoy something a little different.”

The new Meatless Meatball Marinara will be available in Subway stores nationwide from 2nd January.
