Gingham blankets and wicker baskets at the ready – Monday marks the start of National Picnic Week.
With the weather set to make a dramatic U-turn, there’s no doubt people will be out in force at parks and beauty spots, enjoying food and drink in the sunshine.
But if you don’t fancy making your own sandwiches, Pret has launched a new range of products, ahead of the week-long celebration.
The chain has brought out three new picnic products: a smoked salmon and avocado platter, a Ploughman’s platter and a humous and crudités platter – all designed to be shared between two.
The £8.99 salmon and avocado box features Scottish smoked salmon slices, avocado, creamy soft cheese, cucumber, red onion and lemon wedges. It can be purchased in either the ‘Brunch Bundle’ – which comes with orange juice and baguettes – or in a ‘Picnic Bundle’ which includes crisps, baguettes, Pure Pret Still drinks and brownies.
The £8.49 Ploughman’s platter, on the other hand, is made up of Wiltshire-cured ham, mature cheddar, roasted tomatoes, free-range eggs, cucumber, baby plum tomatoes, Pret pickle and mixed salad leaves.
Whereas the £7.29 humous and crudités platter – as you might expect – includes cucumber and red pepper crudités, baby plum tomatoes and humous. This is also available in a ‘Picnic Bundle’, with additional snacks.
Hannah Dolan, global head of food innovation at Pret said: ‘We know that many of our customers are meeting up with family and friends in the park or in their gardens, after months of being apart, and our team of chefs wanted to create something to help celebrate that moment.
‘Our range of picnic platters take the fuss out of hosting and buying individual items. Go one step further and order a bundle via one of our delivery partners, and you’ll be the envy of the park.’
Each platter is now available in Pret stores nationwide, or via delivery on Deliveroo.
