If you’ve decided to embrace a vegan diet this month then local sandwich and coffee shop Sndwch is promising to make Veganuary anything but bland.

Visitors to its sites within General Store and Arrive’s Tomorrow building in MediaCity, can choose from a line-up of TEN original plant-based sandwiches – one to mark each year of the global campaign, which launched in 2014.

New additions include a NOT a Tuna, Spring Onion & Nori Seaweed Sesame Bagel and a NOT a Spicy Fried Chicken Onion Bagel. They join existing bestsellers including the NOT a Chicken Tikka & Onion Bhaji Sndwch.

What’s more, Sndwch has made an unusual addition to its plant-based milks in the form of potato milk. The launch comes in partnership with DUG®, the world’s only potato-powered plant-based milk. Its new DUG® Barista blend is not only smooth, creamy, low in sugar and allergen-friendly, but it’s planet-friendly too.

The climate footprint of potato milk is two-thirds lower than cow’s milk, and because growing potatoes is twice as land efficient as growing oats and uses 98% less water than almonds, it’s more sustainable than other plant-based milks too.

“I only recently discovered potato milk and was a little skeptical at first!”, commented Sndwch founder, Alex Markham, “But it’s delicious – the consistency is very much like dairy milk. It foams up beautifully in coffee and adds creaminess to any hot drink.

“Veganuary is all about keeping an open mind and we’re daring customers to try something completely new. We hope letting people try a potato milk coffee for free will help with the financial pinch this time of year too.”

And what can we expect from Sndwch’s line-up of 10 Veganuary butties?

“You won’t find any humous or falafel. It’s all about choice and exciting plant-based combinations – we always have our eye on emerging trends, like our plant-based tuna and nori seaweed,” adds Alex.

“We make our sandwiches freshly so customers can have it just the way they like it. In fact, with our choice of vegan-friendly breads, fillings, salads and dressings, there are 12,376 possible butty combinations to customise this Veganuary!”
