The shortlist for the Sandwich Designer and FTG Designer of the Year competition has been an arduous task for our judges, ploughing their way through the plethora of entries within each category.

With two new categories for 2019 our budding Sandwich Designers have been keen to demonstrate their healthy and free from creations. The Royal Greenland Prawns category has really showcased some healthy low-cal sandwiches using an interesting range of carriers. The Applewood Cheese food to go pot has also demonstrated an interesting move from the traditional sandwich with some vibrant salad pots and warming hot food pot options. The Sam Browne Foods Shredded Duck category has once again wowed with the interesting ingredient twists to showcase the duck filling and H. Smith’s shredded chicken continually proves its’ versatility as a sandwich filling. New York Bakery Company’s new Star Bun has proven to be a fun carrier and entries have included some really mouth-watering images of star-filled sandwiches. Finally, Norseland’s Jarlsberg cheese has proven itself as a key ingredient whether melted in a hot sandwich or as a tasty cold-eat sandwich filling.

We are delighted to announce this year’s Sandwich Designer of the Year shortlists. Those selected are invited to our heats which are taking place across the UK where they will be asked to create their sandwich for our industry judges:
