Starbucks UK has launched a range of bread-free options designed to appeal to office workers who eat at their desks for lunch. As a further part of its efforts to become more than just a coffee house, the chain has created a range of five "Grab and Go Bistro Boxes", which it says reflects the “international tastes in the UK”. Until now, the Starbucks lunch menu has been limited to sandwiches and Panini's, alongside its range of cakes and recently introduced breakfast menu. The group said that each savoury box contains less than 500 calories and contributes to the recommended nutritional five-a-day. Options include an anti-pasti selection, cheese and oatcakes, and falafel mezze. Brian Waring, vice president of marketing and category for Starbucks UK and Ireland, said: “We believe it is really important that our customers have a wide range of tasty food that complements our great coffee when they visit us. They told us that they wanted different food options, such as more bread-free products, which is why the Bistro Boxes are so on trend."
