Organic sandwiches to take out!

Fresh! organic sandwiches for healthy fast foodIt’s not often we buy a takeaway sandwich. I’ve often thought of them as a waste of money for crap food.

However, I’ve just come across a company called Fresh! Organic 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.

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.

They cater for food allergies with a range of sandwiches on rye bread and stock salads too.

Every month, they launch a mysterious 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.

For ‘fast food’ these sandwiches definiately get my vote

    Sounds good to me. I especially like the FSC compostable packaging, those plastic triangle things that sandwiches normally come in are awful, and they seem to make up quite a bit of the litter I see around my local market town. Thanks for letting us know about this, it’s always good to know there are better options.

    @Goo: Hi Goo, it’s great to see something so simple taking effect. When you consider all the sandwiches sold every day, the packaging is such an important issue if we are to deal with our waste effectively and reduce landfill.
