Best Independent Bakery Sandwich Retailer

Brighton’s great Real Patisserie has won Gold in the Independent Bakery Sandwich Retailer category of this year’s Sammies. Judged by a panel of industry experts for the British Sandwich and Food to go Association’s awards ahead of British Sandwich Week 14-20 May.  

Like all great awards programmes, the Sammies covers every aspect of the Sandwich and Food to Go industry with awards for companies large and small. There is recognition for everything from Technical Excellence to Marketing and Retail. This year for the first time, there is a category specifically for new independent retailers.

The mystery shop judges visited Real Patisserie and, aside from scoring top marks in almost every aspect of the report, the judges’ comments included: “What an amazing place! The bread was outstanding, the hot and cold sandwiches are excellent. This place had great atmosphere, the service was very good. Good veggie options. Good pricing too.”
