Panera Bread Plans To Make Half Of Its Menu Totally Vegan
Popular fast-food chain Panera Bread has announced plans to reduce the amount of meat on offer, and serve a 50 percent vegan menu.
“We already have strong credentials on plant-based” explained Niren Chaudhary, Panera CEO.
“Twenty-five percent of our menu items are plant-based. With just one customization, 60 percent of our menu is plant-based.”
The animal-friendly changes are set to take place over the next few years, with the addition of dishes such as the Ten Vegetable Soup.
“It’s more about better for you, and better for the world, and better for the environment, and better for animals” said Chaudhary.
