The winner of this coveted award will not only achieve the fame and glory of being crowned the Worldie Sandwich Competition Champion 2023, but they will also take home a cool £2,000 cash prize and a year’s supply of Cooks&Co ingredients*. Second place wins £250 and third place wins £100, plus a hamper of Cooks&Co goodies for both runners up.


Anne-Marie Cannon, Cooks&Co Brand Controller, explains what the competition is all about: “We are thrilled to announce the Worldie Sandwich Competition, a platform for  sandwich lovers and foodies to create great tasting sandwiches, showcase their talent and be recognized for their creativity and passion.”

She continues: “We believe that sandwiches are more than just great sustenance: when made with love, care and the very best ingredients they are an art form, and this competition gives us the opportunity to celebrate it.”


Live Sandwich Showdown in London

The competition aims to find the most creative sandwich makers, who will be invited to a live sandwich showdown in London on 20th June 2023, where the ultimate sandwich taste test and judging will be conducted by an esteemed panel of experts. Judges include chef and author Jo Pratt, foodie influencer Ollie Eats, and Markus Tribe-Endt, Chief Taster at Cooks&Co.

The criteria upon which all sandwiches will be judged include: originality, taste, presentation, and including one of Cooks&Co ingredients as a key element in the sandwich.

Speaking about how honoured he is to be a judge in the competition, Ollie of Ollie Eats says: “Everyone loves a good sandwich. They’re so versatile and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and some days I enjoy all three!  Every country has its favourite sandwich, and every month there seems to be a new sandwich recipe trending on social media. That’s why I’m so excited to team up with Cooks&Co to help them discover and reward the most incredible sandwiches and their creators!”
