Simon Lewis, Wightlink’s head of retail, said: ‘We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers an impressive range of sandwiches made with bread that goes from the oven to our ferries within hours. Grace’s products are as fresh as fresh can be and, as it travels just a short distance from the bakery in Ryde, it reduces food miles.’
