The industry’s single greatest award ceremony just got even better. Following its most successful year ever, the British Sandwich Industry Awards have taken yet another stride forward.

Following a review by the Association’s Management Committee we’ve made some major changes to the Award categories for 2017, including shaking up some existing awards and introducing some brand new awards!

The new look awards sees the café and bakery awards merged into the sandwich retailer award; there’s an all new-award for Best Newcomer in the independent sector. There’s also three new awards in the Food to Go sector –New Food to Go Retailer Award; Food to Go Manufacturer Award and Food to Go Innovation Award.

Independent Gold Award winners will receive even more publicity from having their trophies presented to them in their shops so that they can maximise the media opportunities better in their local area.

The new sandwich award has also been updated. Where previously we’ve recognised excellence in up to five different categories, this year, Gold Awards will go to the winners of just three categories: Innovation, Promotional/Seasonal and Hot Sandwich. One of which will also be named the overall winner.

The Sammies 2017 will be held in the Westbourne Suite, at the Lancaster London hotel on 11th May, with the pre-dinner drinks reception held in the Nine Kings Suite.
