Sarnies under spotlight

Eighty percent of employees in the UK think the quality of sandwiches at their business meetings has fallen, according to a recent survey conducted by office design company Maris Interiors. Only 4% questioned felt that the quality of sandwiches had improved over the last five years, with 16% noticing no change.

The average cost of sandwiches per person at meetings currently stands a miserly £3. 80 in the UK. When the survey was first conducted in 2006, the average cost was just under £6 per person. Popular sandwiches back in 2006 included crayfish and avocado and chicken teriyaki – but today cheese and pickle and tuna and sweet corn featured much more heavily in the survey. Maris Interiors chairman Michael Howard said: Its a sign of these austere times that companies are spending much less on sandwiches in the boardroom. Its certainly a sensible way to cut costs, but be careful not to overdo it: you wont impress a client with jam sandwiches!
