Scotmid’s Prosciutto, Mozzarella and Rocket Pizza Sandwich has picked up the ‘New Food-to-go’ gong at this year’s British Sandwich Industry Awards, or Sammies for short.
The award-winning sandwich launched in a select number of Scotmid stores in January and beat out fierce competition from other retail chains and cafés including Waitrose, Tesco and Starbucks.
Part of a Pizza Sandwich range, the winning product is made of prosciutto dried ham on a bed of rocket leaf salad, topped with balls of fresh cow’s mozzarella, layered between two thin slices of authentic, hand-stretched Rome-style sourdough Pizza base. It is served either hot or cold.
Danny Scobie, Food-to-go Operations Manager at Scotmid, said: “Being recognised by The Sammies Awards is a massive boost for our food to go service. At Scotmid, we take great pride in providing delicious, convenient, and good value products to our customers and we nominated our Prosciutto, Mozzarella and Rocket Pizza sandwich for the award because we feel it really demonstrates that. Plus, it’s delicious!”
Scotmid has created three varieties of its Pizza Sandwich:
- Italian Salami & Smoked Cheese
- Smoked Ham, Mozzarella and Rocket
- Tomato, Mozzarella and Rocket
The retailer now has plans to roll-out the sandwich to more stores following the win.
