Skinny spud latte to go? Butty shop is bringing potato milk to Manchester – and it’s free with its line-up of 10 Veganuary sandwiches
• Manchester’s Sndwch is offering free potato milk coffees with any plant-based butty
• Sndwch is trialling a new barista blend which is smooth, creamy and more
sustainable than other plant-based milks
• 10 plant-based sandwiches also join the menu – one to mark each year of the
Veganuary campaign – and include unusual fillings like ‘tuna’ and seaweed and spicy
January – the month for making resolutions, getting healthier and for many thousands
of us, embracing a vegan diet.
Thankfully, the plant-based offerings revealed by Manchester’s Sndwch are promising
to help us in our endeavour to try something new and make Veganuary anything but
The sandwich and coffee shop, which has sites within General Store and Arrive’s
Tomorrow building in MediaCity, has revealed a line-up of 10 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, in its bid to bring new and more exciting vegan options to the city,
Sndwch has made an unusual addition to its plant-based milks in the form of potato
milk. And anyone choosing to swap their semi-skimmed or soya for spud this month
will get their coffee for free, with the purchase of any plant-based sandwich.
The launch comes in partnership with DUG®, the world’s only potato-powered plantbased
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.
“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!”
