Pret A Manger Launches Vegan Hot Drinks

Pret A Manger is launching vegan hot drinks, alongside new breakfast sandwiches and sweet treats in its Hong Kong stores beginning 7 March. To celebrate, UK-based Pret A Manger is introducing a ‘Make Someone Smile’ campaign which will see the company give away 5,000 complimentary coffees and teas.

As Hong Kong’s appetite for more vegan-friendly options increases, Pret’s organic coffees and hot chocolates are now available with Rice-Coconut Milk. This is a great dairy-free alternative to milk and provides a naturally sweet flavour to Pret’s Barista prepared drinks. The new blend of organic coffee includes beans from Ethiopia, Mandheling, Peru, and Nicaragua. This 100% Arabic bean blend combines a nutty almond-like flavour with a sweet berry chocolate aftertaste.

The Matcha Latte (Hong Kong $38), which blends Matcha green tea with steamed Rice-Coconut Milk, is also joining the menu, alongside Rice-Coconut Hot Chocolate ($29) and Rice-Coconut Latte ($38).

From 26 March to the 30 April, Pret is empowering over 5,000 customers to ‘Make Someone Smile’; an initiative that enables customers to give the gift of a free hot drink. Pret’s Barista’s will choose 5,000 customers at random who will receive a special sleeve on their takeaway coffee cup. These customers are, in turn, encouraged to pass the sleeve onto somebody else – a friend, a colleague, or even a complete stranger – who can then redeem it for a free coffee or tea.

Additionally, Pret’s baristas will now give customers (HK) $5 off any barista-prepared organic hot drinks when they bring in their own reusable cup.

Founded in London in 1986, Pret is the short form of the British household name of Pret A Manger (“Ready to Eat”). In 2002, the first Hong Kong outlet opened in IFC Mall. Pret offers freshly-prepared food, using high quality ingredients, avoiding obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives. Today, Pret A Manger has over 500 stores located in eight countries.
