Pret has said changing eating habits have influenced the biggest menu shake-up in its history, with 20 new recipes geared towards a move away from traditional meal times.

The expanded menu, which will have a focus on flexitarians with new vegan and veggie options, will launch next Tuesday.

The brand said that, with two thirds of its salad pots eaten outside of lunchtime, the newly expanded range was designed to ensure more choice through breakfast, mid-morning, lunch and mid-afternoon. There is also a new range of open sandwiches, including two vegan options.

New ingredients introduced include a variety of new ingredients from smashed avocado, to chilli salt and roasted chestnut mushrooms.

The menu also sees the introduction of Pret’s own gluten-free bread, produced in-house.

Pret’s head of food development, Hannah Dolan, said: “We’re so excited to launch our colourful new spring menu, our biggest change in our history, which is a result of listening to what our customers want. Our team of chefs have taken inspiration from all over the world for this new menu and have worked incredibly hard to perfect each and every ingredient. From flavoursome roasted mushrooms, to our own gluten-free bread, which we honestly believe is one of the best out there right now.

“I’m particularly excited about our new salad pots and open sandwiches. Two-thirds of Pret products are now purchased outside of the lunchtime period, and we think these filling snacks and smaller meals will fit really well with our customers’ busy schedules.”
