P&O Ferries has launched a grab & go menu across its ships on the English Channel and North Sea in which every single ingredient will be sourced in Britain.

Culinary highlights will include tuna nicoise salad with sliced British free range egg, black olives and red onions, classic Atlantic prawn mayonnaise on wholemeal bread and Barbers West Country mature cheddar and salad on granary bread.

Sarah Rosier, director of passenger sales at P&O Ferries, said: “One of the main reasons why so many people sail with us to travel to and from their summer holiday in Europe is that they can break their journey for a few hours and enjoy a first class meal on board. This new and quintessentially British menu will enable our customers to eat high quality fresh food quickly and easily at the beginning and end of their trip abroad.”

“We have partnered with the Soho Sandwich Company to create a menu on which all of the meat is British-sourced and accredited by Red Tractor, all the eggs are free range and British Lion-accredited and all the cheese is from Barbers Farmhouse, which has been making cheese since 1833 and uses dairy cows which graze in Somerset and Dorset.”

“It is often said that we are moving to an ‘experience economy’ where memories become the product. Imagine eating fresh and delicious food on one of our ships against the backdrop of the glistening blue sea and you get a sense of what a trip to Europe with P&O Ferries has to offer this summer.”
