Organic sandwiches to go!
It’s not often we buy a takeaway sandwich. I’ve often thought of them as a waste of money for crap food, which is anything but full of natural ingredients. And they are about as far removed from a self sufficient lifestyle as you can get.
However, Last week I came across a company called Fresh! Organics who sell organic sandwiches, made by humans. Yes PEOPLE actually make their food!
You can buy them in Boots stores across the country and Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury’s stores within the M25.
I’m impressed with the packaging, which is another reason I rarely buy a sandwich. Instead of plastic, these come in FSC certified cardboard, which is compostable and the plastic film window is made from cornstarch. So the whole lot can go in your compost bin. That’s about as sustainable and eco friendly as you can get for sandwich packaging!
They stock a great range of flavours including Raw Beetroot, Houmous, Spinach & Mung Bean Sprouts, Brie, Cranberry Sauce & Rocket and Aubergine & Paprika Paté with Cumin as well as more traditional varieties such as Beef and Horseradish, Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato and egg mayonnaise.
Fresh! Organic cater for food allergies with a range of sandwiches on rye bread and stock salads too.
Every month, they launch a mysterious ‘dark green’ sandwich of the month in limited edition packaging. This month it’s “Taurus” with beef, mozzarella, red onion, and pesto on wholegrain bread.
For kids, they sell a range of mini sandwiches which are half the size of an adult portion. This is great for kids who love to eat like us, but have tiny tummies.
Fresh! Organics have achieved some ethical awards for their products such as
