The new sandwich takes its inspiration from the brand’s classic sandwich, but adds a plant-based twist. Served with marinara sauce, sprinkled with grated parmesan cheese and toasted, the Beyond Meatballs used on the sammies have been created just for Subway.

The sub offers the same flavour as Subway’s traditional meatball sub and is packed with 42 grams of protein per six-inch sub.

“We look forward to a long-term partnership with Subway as we together serve and delight existing and new fans of this iconic chain,” Brown said.
