Subway Singapore has just dropped an update on its confirmed Halal certification, despite strong boycott warnings from fans of the longtime sandwich chain.

Starting from 21 March 2018, all 132 Subway Singapore restaurants will no longer serve pork-based proteins. They have also initiated their Halal certification process, clearly to attract a wider demographic or as many have pointed out, partly due to the franchise’s decreasing popularity and sales over the years.

Subway Singapore did not point out if they will be removing any subs on the menu and at the time of writing, the BLT is no longer listed on the menu online; Meatball Marina Melt is, strangely, still around.

There has been quite a bit of displeasure going around on the social media, it’s hard to know if Subway Singapore’s gamble towards Halal will eventually pay off.

Here are some wonderful feedback to calm things down if you felt betrayed
