Virgin Trains has been recognised in two categories at the British Sandwich Awards: The Sammies 2016.Virgin Trains came top in ‘The New Sandwich Award’, which recognises the best pre-packed sandwich released in the last year. The judges were impressed with Virgin Trains’ Scottish smoked salmon and lemon mayonnaise sandwich on dark wholemeal bread, which is served in First Class and named it the best in the awards’ ‘Standard Category’.
The train operator was also recognised for its sandwiches available in the on board shop and First Class, being named joint runner-up for the ‘En-route Sandwich Retailer of the Year’, which champions the sandwich offerings along major travel routes and travel hubs.
Amanda Smit, Head of Catering at Virgin Trains, said: “We’re passionate about the food we serve on board our trains and always strive to offer our customers great quality and value, as well as something different to what they’d expect on a journey along the West Coast Mainline travelling at 125mph. We believe our food is tasty and sometimes better than that of the high street and we’re thrilled to have been recognised at these prestigious awards.”
