Day 21: Pret A Manger’s Rip-Off Wrap

Day 21 of >>> Away in Pret A Manger Ad-VENT Calendar

A very light airy wrap with lots of room for imagination…

Get the popcorn out, put the kettle on… this will take a while!


(Recent updates not included here, but some are added underneath the slideshow, there is more which is not included on this page)

UPDATE 16.06.2022

More complaints added which are not in below slide and post. But these are just the tip of the iceberg, as not everyone complains publicly or with photos.

For a full visual list: Pret A Manger Misleading Packaging and the Class Action vs Pret for Deceptive Packaging settled in New York February 2019, and a Tweet to a customer that Pret deleted after seeing my blog entry on the misleading packaging issue.


New complaints keep coming that are not featured in above slideshow. And keep in mind, not everyone complains on Twitter about it or makes photos:

to be continued unfortunately …

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather starve and speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by
The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review: 1. “Late Night Girl’s” Story with Pret and 2. Pushing Back Against Pret.
Thank you for reading/listening.
