James Hall & Co. celebrates its 75 millionth sandwich

James Hall & Co. has reached a production landmark with its 75 millionth sandwich. The 5th-generation, Preston-based family business serves SPAR retailers across the north of England. To celebrate the milestone sandwich — packaged in gold and black wrapping — the SPAR shop located on the Lancaster University campus hosted a special event to mark the day, including a free sandwich drive.

This occasion also leads to another landmark: getting close to raising £750,000 from James Hall & Co.’s 1p sandwich pledge, along with its 10p Christmas special sandwich initiative. All the money is donated to Marie Curie, James Hall & Co’s charity partner.

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.”
