The Meatless Meatball Wrap launches today as the newest item on Pret’s “Hot” menu. The garlic and herb-infused vegan meatballs are made exclusively for Pret a Manger by plant-based protein company Meatless Farm.

The Meatless Meatball Wrap comes with the Meatless Farm meatballs, marinara sauce, red onions, red pepper, and crispy onions wrapped in a 7-grain tortilla. Each wrap contains an impressive 24g of protein and is perfect for lunch on the go. As of today, the Meatless Meatball Wrap is available at all Pret a Manger locations in New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington DC.

Pret a Manger’s First Meat Alternative

While the brand currently offers a few other vegan options, the Meatless Meatball Wrap is their first foray into meat alternatives. Suitable for vegans, flexitarians, and meat-eaters alike, the US launch of the Meatless Meatball Wrap comes after a record-breaking launch in the UK last year.

Pret a Manger USA President Jorrie Bruffett stated that the brand is “excited to offer [its] first meat-alternative menu item for customers who are looking to enjoy more plant-based options for health reasons, animal welfare, or helping to protect our planet.”

Vegan Options at Pret a Manger

Pret a Manger (which translates to “ready to eat”) is already a vegan-friendly spot to grab a quick bite on the go. Current vegan options include the Creamy Oatm*lk Porridge, Curried Cauliflower & Chickpea Grain Bowl, Falafel & Hummus Wrap, and Moroccan Lentil Soup. Vegan entrees are clearly marked “VG” on the menu to make ordering that much easier. And if you’re in the mood for a coffee, Pret a Manger offers vegan milk alternatives at no extra cost!
