It’s a bumper first issue of 2024, as we launch into the new year with a series of exclusive interviews and features.
Welcome to a ground-breaking latest edition.
It's our biggest issue in years - and I'm looking forward to showcasing it at lunch! Part two of our preview is on page 28. The packaging special is a 14-page tour de force, with insightful contributions from across the sector. Breads and hot food assess trends and product innovation in a tough market, while there's a comprehensive news section, as usual.
In this issue, there’s a bumper news section and exclusive interviews with the team at Raynor Foods, who have helped develop the Digital Sandwich. Mark my words, it’s the future. Labelling nearly two years on from Natasha’s Law goes back under the microscope, while we look at a disruptive, low-carb producer of condiments and sauces, along with an early preview of lunch!
At the start of a new year, we take a look at vegetarian, seafood trends and ‘green’ packaging, as well as some success stories in machinery and IT innovation that are helping to make a difference. We also, as ever, encourage you to get involved in the Sammies – a great way to put your business in the spotlight by recognising achievements.
In this final issue of 2022, we canvas the opinions of some of the sector’s commentators and market researchers when it comes to food to go’s future. We also look ahead to Veganuary and report on the major challenges of continually rising costs that are responsible for extra pressures now being placed upon operators and their suppliers.
In this issue, we look ahead to the imminent Sammies 2022, as well as British Sandwich Week, and encourage you to get involved. We also report on the issues surrounding packaging waste in the food to go sector, and the need to be able to dispose of it in an environmentally-friendly manner.
As spring rolls in and winter fades, we look ahead at the plans for British Sandwich Week while also exploring the challenges that legislation and sustainability in packaging pose. This issue also has a meaty flavour to it as we investigate the enduring popularity of meat in sandwiches and food to go.
At the start of a new year, we look at the increasing interest in vegetarian and plant-based food, as well as the importance of steps being taken to reduce waste when it comes to food packaging. Recruitment is also in the spotlight with many operators in the sector finding this a particular challenge right now.
In this issue, our features cover meats, packaging and snacks, and we also learn more about the ‘digital sandwich’. As usual, there’s an opportunity to come up to speed with all the Sammies Awards latest, and as the sector makes plans to re-open, we also share some operator insight on ‘lessons learned’ during the past eventful year.
Our final issue of a year to be remembered for all the wrong reasons looks ahead to 2021, including the possible effects of WTO trading terms and Natasha's Law. There are features on bread as well as store layout, all alongside the usual industry news round-up and the latest from the British Sandwich & Food to Go Association.
