With Spring in the air, this also signifies that the shortlists are in for this year’s Sammies Awards. We have had an exciting time ploughing through this year’s entries. We are seeing some great innovation and the entries really signify how the sandwich and food to go markets are continually evolving and responding to consumers.

Within the entries we have seen a huge rise in interest for healthy eating as demonstrated in the Sandwich & FTG Healthy Eating Award. There are evidently huge advances within the industry and The Sandwich & FTG Marketing Award really demonstrates how technology and social media is driving promotion within the sector. Likewise, the level of competition within the Sandwich & FTG En-Route Sandwich Retailer Award shows the increasingly high standards within the sector as busy lifestyles demand healthier and nutritious food on the go.

We are delighted to share the shortlists for The Sammies 2019 and look forward to the winners being announced at this year’s Awards Dinner at the Royal Lancaster London Hotel on Thursday 9th May.
