The Sammies is one of the most important events for the UK’s food-to-go industry, and the awards dinner on Thursday 9th May 2019 will be attended by brands such as Pret A Manger, Greggs, Costa, M&S and Co-op.
Flexeserve Zone® will sponsor the ‘New Sandwich Award’ at this year’s The British Sandwich Industry Awards, known as The Sammies. Organised by The British Sandwich & Food To Go Association, the Awards recognise excellence within the industry, from ‘Sandwich Retailer’ to ‘Food To Go Innovation’.
Flexeserve Zone® is the patented, industry-leading, hot food-to-go unit – designed, crafted and supported with the greatest hot-holding expertise. The unit maintains a wide variety of food in a ‘fresh’ state at optimum serving temperatures for record hold times, without compromising appearance, taste or texture.
The Alan Nuttall Partnership’s Foodservice Innovation Centre in Hinckley regularly plays host to household names in food-to-go. It’s here that experts, such as in-house Development Chef, Warwick Wakefield, deliver a comprehensive menu development service – advising on the composition of food and packaging. This, together with Flexeserve Zone®, provides the optimum hot-holding solution.
This year, Flexeserve Zone® joins an impressive list of sponsors of The Sammies Awards, which includes supermarket Waitrose, food-to-go retailers Greggs and food manufacturer Greencore.
Jamie Joyce, Chief Executive of the Partnership’s Foodservice Solutions division, said: “We are honoured to sponsor an award this year. For many years we have followed The Sammies Awards in the International Sandwich & Food to Go News Magazine and have been keen to celebrate the successes within the industry.
“It’s through interacting with the industry, over the past 25 years, that we have been able to create the world’s best food-to-go heated display unit. We believe that sponsoring The Sammies is an important part of maintaining our position as the experts in hot-holding and hot food-to-go.”
The Alan Nuttall Partnership has also submitted its latest product – Flexeserve Zone® Countertop Rear Feed – for the ‘New Product Award’, following a successful launch at NAFEM 2019, the largest food equipment show in the US.
Jamie continued: “I’m very excited about our latest Flexeserve Zone® product, and glad to have it entered for the ‘New Product Award’. It’s a long-anticipated development for our award winning product, offering smart technology and rear feed functionality for hot food-to-go operators. We look forward to seeing the positive impact these innovations have ‘on the ground’. Our customers have been the driver behind this development, giving us a great opportunity to meet the requirements of a modern food-to-go environment.”
