Sandwich Filling Trends 2019: Tips for Food Businesses

5 of the best sandwich fillings to inspire your menus

The sandwich has always had a strong reputation in Britain –‘the best thing since sliced bread’ springs to mind! But these days, sandwich fillings have come leaps and bounds with out-of-this-world recipes to attract customers.

At J. Buckland, we are on trend with what customers are looking for in their sandwich in 2019. In fact, we are famous for our own incredible range of sandwich fillings and are always coming up with dream creations here in our kitchen in Essex! Read on to get your “filling” of our best tips to selling more sandwiches in your business...

Tip 1: Add all-day breakfast sandwich fillings to your menu

Looking to sell sandwiches around the clock? Look no further than the trusty all-day breakfast sandwich. That’s right – Brits everywhere love this fulfilling treat any time of day… or night! Whether it’s a simple bacon sarnie or the full English breakfast in one mighty sandwich, it’s an irresistible indulgence for many. 

We serve coffee shops and bakeries and more to give their customers a top-notch breakfast. So, we know that the quality of meat is of the utmost importance if you want to make your punters happy and keep them coming back for more. Our own fresh bacon cut to order and range of sausages make delivering that hot breakfast sandwich easy and fresh. Or, if you want to offer your customers a cold breakfast sandwich which they can just grab-and-go, check out our Great British Breakfast Sandwich filling – a classic egg mayonnaise with added breakfast sausage and diced crispy bacon.

Tip 2: Offer a choice of sandwich fillings

Your customers will have different tastes and dietary preferences. We have a whole range of meat proteins available, as well as fish and vegetarian options, making it easy for you to offer a selection of fillings that are part of a healthy and balanced diet. Think protein and veggies!

The choice doesn’t have to stop at the fillings either – think of the base too! Yes, that’s carbs my friend. You could offer an assortment of breads, such as our wholemeal baguettes for a healthier option, or our tortilla wrapspaninis or bagels for something different. See our full selection of bread products.

Tip 3: Deliver top quality sandwich ingredients (and shout about it!)

Customers care about where their food comes from and the quality of it, so it’s important to choose a sandwich filling supplier that is certified to the highest standards.

That’s why at J. Buckland, our sandwich fillings are made in-house using only the finest ingredients, where we can keep an eye on the quality and freshness of our products. All of our sandwich fillings are produced in accordance with HACCP regulations and we are audited annually by SALSA - the UK's leading food safety experts. Rest assured, all of our sandwich fillings are also halal, ensuring peace of mind to many that care about what’s in their ingredients and how it’s made.

Tip 4: Explore regional sandwich flavours

Customers are now seeking unique flavours when it comes to sandwich fillings, with regional flavours becoming increasingly popular. We’ve come up with some rather creative (and sometimes wonderful!) recipes to tickle your customers’ palates and offer something exciting and new.

With chicken tikka masala claimed to be the UK’s national dish, this goes to demonstrate our craving for aromatic and spicy foods, and this is also true when it comes to sandwich fillings. Made with authentic Indian spices, we have some amazing fillings that will delight curry-lovers and keep them coming back for more. These include:
