Supreme Court Rules Bread In Subway’s Hot Sandwiches Is Too Sugary To Be Legally Defined As Bread

It follows an appeal by Galway based Bookfinders LTD which owns a Subway franchise.

Yesterday, the five-judge court found that the sandwiches could not be deemed a staple food which has a zero VAT rate.

The court ruled that the bread in Subway’s hot sandwiches falls outside the legal definition of bread because it has a sugar content of 10 percent of the weight of the flour in the dough.
