The Plant-based Teriyaki Steak is packed with vegan steak, teriyaki sauce, dairy-free CheeZe and veggies of your choice


Subway UK has added a new vegan sandwich to its lineup in time for Veganuary – the Plant-based Teriyaki Steak Sub.

According to the brand, the meat-free sandwich is packed with vegan steak (which has been created in partnership with The Vegetarian Butcher), teriyaki sauce, Vegan CheeZe and veggies of your choice.

Furthermore, the sandwich chain has revealed it’s partnered meat-free brand The Vegetarian Butcher to provide its plant-based ‘meat’ options from January 2023 onwards.

Subway describes the veggie meat company as ‘one of the world’s leading plant-based meat brands, created by meat lovers, for meat lovers’, adding that it ‘produces high-quality products, meaning you don’t need to sacrifice taste or texture to enjoy plant-based food‘.  

The new sub joins other vegan options available at the outlet, including the Plant Patty, Veggie Delite (when ordered with dairy-free CheeZe), Crinkle Wedges and its Vegan Double Choc Cookie.

In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Angelina Gosal, Head of Marketing UK & Ireland at Subway said: “What a way to start the New Year! Both of our delicious new Subs offer a more vibrant and flavourful lunch with a mouth-watering Teriyaki sauce, melted cheese and all our guest’s favourite salad and veggies. 

“Our Plant-based Teriyaki Steak has been created in collaboration with The Vegetarian Butcher, one of the world’s leading plant-based meat brands, so our guests don’t have to compromise on taste or texture to enjoy a meat-free lunch.”

Hugo Verkuil, CEO at The Vegetarian Butcher, added: “At The Vegetarian Butcher, we create products that make it easy to sacrifice nothing; not taste, texture, the environment or nutrition.

“We are very excited about the cooperation with Subway and the Plant-based Teriyaki Steak Sub. The juicy, beefy steak-style slices are the perfect way to show how plant-based and indulgence can go hand in hand.”
