National Bread Week Launch

The National Bread Week was launched today in the Bord Bia Offices by Senator Fergal Quinn and included guest speakers TV Chef Rachael Allen and Dr Mary Mcreery.

The Launch is the start of a week long campaign by the FCBA and it members, to raise awareness of the benefits of bread and to combat some of the bad press Bread receives in the media about diets etc.

There was a good turnout of members and baskets of bread were dropped to radio stations across Ireland to highlight the Bread week.

All the speakers gave passionate talks about how they love bread and Dr Mary Mcreery Gave a very interesting talk on the benefits of bread.
