British Sandwich Week: 20th-26th May

Every year British Sandwich Week celebrates the humble sandwich in all its glory as well as the contribution that the sandwich industry makes to the economy. The British Sandwich & Food to Go Association is the trade body behind the celebratory week.


About Us

British Sandwich Week which takes place this year between 20th-26th May is organised by The British Sandwich & Food to Go Association, the trade body established in 1990 to represent the interests of all those businesses involved with the food on the move industry.

Members range from supermarkets and food to go manufacturers to sandwich bars, cafes and the suppliers of ingredients and equipment for the industry. As well as representing the interests of members to Government, the Association sets industry standards and organises events such as British Sandwich Week and the annual British Sandwich & Food To Go Industry Awards, also known as the ‘Sammies’.
