All-new URBAN eat line up for 2017

URBAN eat pack refresh

We’re giving the UK’s favourite sandwich brand, URBAN eat, a major makeover this summer that will see it go back to its urban roots to offer the best on-shelf appeal in the market. The entire URBAN eat range has been given a cohesive, colourful packaging design that plays on the brands heritage, featuring a city skyline front of pack.

The relaunch also includes a selection of new and ‘best ever’ products and is being supported by an exciting online promotion ‘URBAN (b)eats’ which will run for three months from September.

This relaunch is one of our biggest campaigns to date, and we are confident it will unlock massive sales opportunities for caterers and retailers across the UK. We’ve invested heavily to ensure we are bringing the best ever URBAN eat selection to market – from packaging, to the addition of on-trend variants and improved taste across the entire portfolio. Our extensive pre-launch research revealed our design refresh as consumers’ first choice against Ginsters and Tiffin for on-shelf appeal[1], and product quality that was consistently rated better than M&S[2].

This is an important time for the Food to Go market. With more on offer than ever before consumers are changing their shopping habits – in particular there has been a rise in earlier lunchtimes (from 11am) and the purchase of lunch options in the morning[3]. Therefore, getting the early offering right and stocking a strong range of trusted, quality sandwiches such as URBAN eat is key. Consumers will always pay more for superior taste.

We’re making some on-trend additions to the URBAN eat range, such as Chicken Tikka Bhaji, three new halal and two gluten-free sandwiches, as well as four delicious toasties. In addition, hospitality caterers will have the choice of new gluten-free, halal and vegan platters – something to meet every taste bud and nutritional need. We’ve made product improvements and added new lines to the full URBAN eat portfolio, including Posh Nosh, No Fuss, eat better and Roots.

New URBAN eat will be available to operators nationwide from 21st August 2017, supported by comprehensive point of sale materials and planograms.

URBAN (b)eats will run for 13 weeks from the 1st September, offering over 300 tech and music prizes including Spotify and iTunes vouchers, vinyl decks and Beats headphones. Find out more by contacting the sales team on 0333 003 7843 or
