Thank You To The Journalists Who Have Covered Our Great Tradition

A lot of our work involves working with journalists, writers, producers, and the media, answering their questions and helping them understand the tradition of the English breakfast. Over the last decade we have given more than three hundred interviews to newspapers, radio stations, magazines in too many countries to count, and we have appeared on television representing the tradition many times, acting as the PR team representing the tradition, and raising its profile in the media for more than a decade.

We are responsible for the current resurgence of the tradition nationally, and for encouraging the tradition into a global trend, by raising the English breakfast up on the international stage.
