The British Sandwich Association defines a sandwich as: Any form of bread with a filling, generally assembled cold - to include traditional wedge sandwiches, as well as filled rolls, baguettes, pitta, bloomers, wraps and bagels. With this in mind, be inventive with your choices. Take a look at our range of bakery items to be ahead of your competitors.

To help caterers keep up with the convenience and choice consumers want in their rolls, we have a variety of Sandwich fillers that will keep your lunch menus on trend.

Spread the word and offer great deals such as a sandwich and drink offer for eating in but it’s also important to cater for consumers and not miss out on takeaway trade. With a range of sandwich packaging ready to enhance your sales, your butties will be good to go!
