English Breakfast Day takes place on December 2nd every year and is celebrated by millions of people internationally. It was originally started in 1975 by our Chairman in order to support the history and heritage of the English breakfast and to celebrate a centuries old Anglo tradition globally.
The tradition of the full English breakfast is one that is regularly enjoyed in all four corners of the earth. In the United Kingdom, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the full English Breakfast is making a roaring comeback and is now more popular than at any time since the 1960’s.
We believe that international English Breakfast Day helps achieve three goals worth pursuing. It supports traditional chefs, farmers and butchers, it celebrates an icon of English culinary culture and finally, it spreads word of the English breakfast tradition internationally, introducing new fans to our traditional full English breakfast ways.
You can get involved on the day by enjoying our beloved national dish and sharing the experience on social media using the official English Breakfast Day hashtag #EnglishBreakfastDay.
