10) To ensure food safety in its restaurants, what steps does SUBWAY® Restaurants take?

Due to the recent issues with food safety, we wish to assure our customers that we follow strict requirements of the Macau government, according to their food and health policies. We are currently sourcing our beef from Australia in response to the ban on US beef. If and when the ban is lifted, the source of supply may change.

Gloves are required to be worn during all food handling procedures. Also, all franchises are provided with detailed information on proper food handling procedures in order to properly train their crew members.

Topics that are covered include proper hand washing and glove-use procedures, and food rotation. Food is prepared fresh daily and temperatures are monitored regularly.

 SUBWAY® sandwiches are a healthier alternative to traditionally greasy fast food. The SUBWAY® chain is proud to be able to provide the tools necessary for health-conscious consumers to make educated and informed decisions about what to eat with nutritional information that is available on our Web site and in our restaurants.

12) How does SUBWAY® Restaurants adapt its menu to allow for religious and cultural needs in Macau and Asian markets?

 While SUBWAY® Restaurants tries to keep its menu consistent around the world – so that you can expect to enjoy the same great-tasting sandwiches wherever you go around the globe – we are conscious of different religious and cultural dietary needs. For instance, in India, where the population is either Hindu and does not eat beef or Muslim and does not eat pork, these ingredients are appropriately substituted with chicken, lamb or turkey.
