James Hall & Co Marks 75 Millionth Sandwich Off The Production Line

A North West food firm has celebrated turning out its 75 millionth sandwich.

Preston’s The Great Northern Sandwich Company, part of James Hall & Co Ltd, has been making sandwiches and wraps for 14 years, during which time it has distributed thousands to Spar stores across the north of England. The firm marked the occasion with a giveaway at Spar Lancaster University – the company-owned network’s store that sells the highest volume of sandwiches.

Customers were treated to free sandwiches and the 75 millionth product was presented in gold and black packaging. Next month the family firm hopes to reach another milestone as its 1p charity sandwich pledge is expected to reach £750,000 since its inception in October 2011. End-of-life charity Marie Curie has been the beneficiary of the initiative since November 2016.

Andrew Barnes, trading director at James Hall & Co. Ltd, said: “We are proud to reach this fantastic milestone. Sandwiches are the bread and butter of our food manufacturing business, and it is a huge achievement for the department who make a strong range of delicious, high-quality products to scale day in and day out. Sandwiches and wraps form an integral part of our retail offer in both our company-owned Spar stores and with our independent retailers, with the meal deal being a hugely popular mechanism for Spar North of England customers who want a great value and flavourful lunch.

“To top off this incredible manufacturing milestone, we are also very close to reaching £750,000 raised through the charity sandwich pledge, and Marie Curie is a wonderful cause we are delighted to support.”

Imogen Duffin, corporate partnerships manager at Marie Curie, said: “We are very grateful for the continuing support of SPAR UK, and congratulate James Hall & Co. Ltd on this impressive and tasty achievement. Over the years, Spar UK have been a valued partner to Marie Curie and through their generous donations have helped us provide expert end of life care and support for people with any illness they are likely to die from.”
