Sandwich consumption is high; on average, consumers eat more than three sandwiches per week. However, 54 percent of consumers (up from 51 percent two years ago), indicate they are preparing sandwiches themselves. Zeroing in on the quality of their sandwich ingredients is also essential. Compared to two years ago, today's consumers place higher importance on quality and quantity, as well as the appetizing appearance of sandwich ingredients. Sandwiches fill the need for fast, convenient and portable meal options: three out of every five sandwiches (61 percent) that consumers order are taken to go, and 49 percent of consumers sometimes purchase grab-and-go sandwiches. Most consumers place high importance on health for sandwiches at lunch (51 percent) and dinner (53 percent).
