Subway replaces wraps with 'healthier' flatbreads

Subway is ditching its wrap products and replacing them with low-fat flatbreads as it seeks to offer healthier alternatives, alongside its core subs.

Subway is supporting the rollout of the low-fat flatbreads with a £2m marketing campaign running for four weeks across TV and two weeks across outdoor advertising, along with digital activity.

The low-fat flatbreads range will comprise nine flatbreads, each containing less than 400 calories and providing one of the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

The flatbreads will replace wrap products, which are less healthy, according to Subway.

Subway is framing the change as a move to align itself with the Government’s Public Health Responsibility Deal, which pledges to cut calories and salts from food.

The fast-food chain previously committed to display nutritional information on menu boards, also as part of its commitment to the Responsibility Deal.
