- Special edition menu featuring vegan and vegetarian dishes with plant-based alternatives to be available across all PizzaExpress stores and exclusive delivery partner Deliveroo
PizzaExpress today launches a new sustainable menu - Verde (Italian for green) in Singapore, featuring vegan and vegetarian dishes with plant-based meat alternatives like Beyond Meat and Omnipork. Verde options will be available to diners at all PizzaExpress' outlets in Singapore including Deliveroo Editions and through Deliveroo, complementing PizzaExpress' regular menu of well-loved classics.
Verde is inspired by PizzaExpress' vision of offering diners more choice when it comes to sustainable, meat-free options, and encouraging meat-lovers to reduce their meat consumption. By playing with some of the innovative, plant-based meat alternatives available on the market today, PizzaExpress has created a menu filled with compelling flavours that even the most fervent meat-lovers would enjoy. Designed by PizzaExpress Head Chef Louie Moong, the new vegan menu features a rich selection of starters, mains and desserts. Key highlights of the menu include the Beyond Curried Beef Penne Al Forno, vegan-friendly Omnipork Penne al Aglio Olio and Mushroom and Black Truffle Risotto.
"With such a clear need to reduce consumption of meat globally, we wanted to introduce a menu with some great-tasting meat-free options, for all diners; not just vegans and vegetarians," says Nick Freeman, General Manager at PizzaExpress Singapore.
Singapore's most loved food delivery service, Deliveroo, will also be the exclusive delivery partner for PizzaExpress' new Verde menu. A selection of 15 dishes from the menu will be available for home delivery, catering to the growing segment of consumers looking for vegan or non-meat options.
"We're seeing a growing trend of customers wanting to adopt more sustainable diets; in fact, we see up to 10% of customers order in vegan or vegetarian dishes each day," says Siddharth Shanker, General Manager at Deliveroo Singapore. "As a company, we want to do our part to lessen our impact on the environment, and we're proud to support like-minded restaurant partners like PizzaExpress who share the same values. With PizzaExpress' Verde menu, we're pleased to be able to offer more vegan and vegetarian choices on our platform, do our bit to build a more sustainable future,while ensuring our customers get to sit back, order in and enjoy great food."
Verde will be available across all six PizzaExpress' outlets in Singapore, including its outlet at Deliveroo Editions, and for home delivery through Deliveroo starting from 18 February 2019.
