The Sandwich Industry Award is in the gift of the BSA Management Committee and is presented to an individual or organisation for outstanding contribution to the Sandwich & Food to Go Industry.

This year has presented an unprecedented challenge for our industry and it has been difficult to single out any one person or business for this award.

Instead we are using the platform it offers to take a moment to simply thank everyone who has been working tirelessly over the past few months to keep the wheels of our industry turning.

To our packaging suppliers now making PPE for frontline workers. Thank you.

To our supermarkets and convenience stores for finding a way for us to shop safely. Thank you.

To our wholesalers who've been delivering care packages to our society's most vulnerable. Thank you.

To our sandwich bars and cafes who have found new ways to keep going. Thank you.

To our sandwich bars and cafes who couldnt stay open but are ready and waiting. For your patience, thank you.

To our colleagues who've been furloughed. We will see you soon. Thank you.

To our delivery drivers, sandwich fillers, machine operators, cleaners, admin staff and so many more who've just kept going. Thank you.

To everyone who is part of an industry which contribues £billions to this country's economy. You are going to be needed to help rebuild it. Thank you.
