Meatless Meatball Subs

Subway and Beyond Meat Have Created the Beyond Meatball Marinara Sub

— August 8, 2019 — Lifestyle
Subway has collaborated with Beyond Meat to create the beyond Meatball Marinara Sub, which is a plant-based alternative to Subway's Meatball sub. The Beyond Meatball Marinara sub will be released in September at 685 locations across the United States and Canada. The new menu item will only be available for a limited time. Subway continues to cater its menu to add more plant-based options for the growing flexitarian market, or for people who are simply looking to reduce their meat consumption.

The plant-based meat alternative company created the Beyond Meatballs for this item in particular and they are the first-ever Beyond Meatballs. The Beyond Meatballs may be plant-based, however, they still contain 24 grams of protein in each of the new 6-inch sandwiches.
