Sandwiches Short on Fillings - 18/05/2009
 

VEGA Introduces New Ideas in its Portfolio

The top 10 sandwich fillings in the UK are:

1. Bacon, lettuce and tomato
2. Egg and cress
3. Chicken and bacon
4. Prawn salad
5. Chicken salad
6. Cheese and pickle
7. Tuna and sweetcorn
8. Ham and salad
9. Cheese and tomato
10. Egg and bacon

The most recent statistics from the British Sandwich Association (BSA), whose Sandwich Week ran from 10th to 16th May, show that 25% of sandwiches are bought from multiple grocers such as Marks & Spencer's, 22% from bakers, 19% at the workplace, 15%, from café and sandwich bars and 5% from convenience stores and corner shops.

Now is the time for redoubled enterprise in fillings and breads for sandwiches, wraps, and pitas in the Portfolio style of eating plans. We shall be taking up this challenge for attractively and seasonally developed lunch boxes, picnic hampers, snacks, and for contents that almost comprise a meal in themselves. The BSA's top 10 is lamentably thin on attractions for veggies and other diseriminating foodies. We'll have this problem wrapped up for caterers and for home-prepared butties.
