Since 1986, Pret A Manger has been creating handmade, natural food, avoiding the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much of the ‘prepared’ and ‘fast’ food on the market today.
To make this possible we build a kitchen* in (or very near) every shop. You won’t find ‘sell-by’ dates on our fresh sandwiches and salads. We don’t sell ‘factory’ stuff.
Our ingredients are delivered early every day. We don’t mind that fresh and fragile ingredients go off quickly – we start from scratch each morning. We do this because natural fresh food tastes better than processed food and it’s good for you.
If and when we make too much, we offer it to local charities at the end of the day. We simply don’t need to sell old food, so we don’t. We never have and we never will.
