Subway is coming with a new sandwich, which is first to feature antibiotic-free meat. Subway has the biggest fast-food restaurant chain in the world. Next month, Subway will have a new chicken sandwich featuring antibiotic-free meat for the first time in their chain of restaurants. This sandwich, which also contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, will debut on March 1st. Within the next two or three years, Subway will also offer antibiotic-free turkey. Subway is also working on raising cows and pigs without antibiotics, which will most likely be completed in 2025. “We are looking at all our menu items and ingredients and looking at how we can make those ingredient lists cleaner so customers can understand what’s in their food,” Lanette Kovachi, Subway’s global dietitian, told members of the media at a Subway store in New York City. Lanette also said that by the end of this year, Subway will have removed all artificial colors and flavors off their menus. “Today’s consumer is ever more mindful of what they are eating, and we’ve been making changes to address what they are looking for,” Dennis Clabby, executive vice president of Subway’s Independent Purchasing Cooperative (IPC), said in a statement last year.
