Subway On Its Way to Removing Artificial Colours, Flavours and Preservatives From the Menu by 2017

We love this:

SUBWAY® restaurants made a bold commitment to remove all artificial colours, flavours and preservatives by 2017. To date, SUBWAY® Canada has removed artificial colours, flavours and preservatives from 28 menu items, adding turkey, chicken and roast beef to its growing roster of toppings, soups and proteins that contain the ‘free from’ claim. 

SUBWAY® restaurants has also strengthened its commitment to investing in Canadian agriculture across the country. Introducing Canadian-raised ham, turkey and shaved steak, and committed to sourcing all roast beef, chicken and meatballs from Canadian producers by the end of the year. The sandwich shops also provide home-grown produce across Canada, where possible. During peak harvest seasons Western Canada guests are able to enjoy British Columbia-grown cucumbers, guests in Ontario can add cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and onions from the Green Belt region and guests in Quebec can add local green peppers.
