Those sandwich factories don't half get through some bread. One of the
smaller ones I deliver to in Worksop gets up to two artic loads per
day.

Indeed, but they still like to get a nice long shelf life ont he stuff they
sell. The ultimate recycling seems to be when the sandwich filling is made
from chopped up shite with mayo.

Because wifey is now a business tycoon in the food industry we get a bucket
load of free magazines every week. One recurring theme is machinery for
making sandwiches at high speed. It turns my stomach.

They would a subsidiary of Unilever then?

I got bored one afternoon trying to explain to people that Dolmio and Ragu
were not "italian" and they aren't even sold in Italy because the Italians
would laugh. It's a neat trick though, make flour and water paste, add red
colouring and vinegar, market as pasta sauce.
