FUW marknadsför walesiska frukostar i lantbrukskök, byhallar och för politiker




FUW Frukost sponsrar (04)Farmhouse kitchens will be filled with mouth-watering smells as part of the annual Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) campaign of support for locally produced Welsh food during this year’s Farmhouse Frukostvecka (söndag 26 januari-lördag 1 februari).

The union has organised a host of events, ranging from hearty breakfasts in Snowdonia farmhouse kitchens to a prestigious lunch at the House of Lords, that start with a Welsh buffet breakfast next Tuesday (14 January) at the National Assembly’s Senedd building in Cardiff Bay.

At Parc, near Bala, the union’s Meirionnydd county branch will hold a Welsh breakfast event on Monday 27 January (from 10-13h) at Ysgol y Parc which, since its closure as a school, is being used as a community centre. The function will be hosted by FUW members Olwen and Nia Davies, of Ty Cerrig, Parc.

The branch has also arranged a breakfast event for Friday 31 January (8h and 11h30) at Mr and Mrs R J Breese’s farm, Gogarth, Pennal, that local AM Dafydd Elis-Thomas is expected to attend.

And FUW’s Flintshire branch has organised a breakfast function on Saturday February 1 at Cilcain Village Hall, Cilcain, Mold, hosted by Mrs Fiona Faire who can be contacted on 01978 790240.

The various events will highlight the union’s enthusiastic support for the Farmhouse Breakfast Week campaign organised since 2000 by the Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA).

Between January 26 and February 1 breakfasts will be held on a total of eight farms in Caernarfonshire and Denbighshire and another at Bryncir livestock market’s cafe.


The FUW’s annual breakfast functions at the Senedd, House of Lords and European Parliament in Brussels are sponsored by the Welsh Government, Welsh red meat promotion agency Hybu Cig Cymru and E.ON.

FUW president Emyr Jones said the union is a keen supporter of HGCA’s campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the rich variety and quality of breakfast foods available in Wales and the rest of the UK.

“It’s great to see so many members joining us in promoting farmhouse breakfast week this year and I am sure the breakfasts served up in every farmhouse kitchen taking part will fill the air with a delicious smell that will get everyone’s taste buds excited.

"I Storbritannien hoppar en av fyra personer över frukost under veckan och så många som var sjätte vuxen äter aldrig frukost även om experter hävdar att det är dagens viktigaste måltid och spelar en nyckelroll i att hjälpa till att bekämpa fetma.

“The NHS also says eating breakfast has long term health benefits and can reduce obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.

“The theme for HGCA’s campaign ‘Shake Up Your Wake Up’ encourages us to make small changes to our morning routine to make sure you have time for breakfast every day!

“It is all about showcasing the most important meal of the day in a bid to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast and the huge variety of top quality farm produce available in Wales – ranging from bacon, sausages and eggs to speciality dairy products, breads and cereals.”

During the Senedd breakfast natural resources and food minister Alun Davies will launch Farming Connect’s Agri-Academy 2014 and representatives of a wide cross-section rural organisations in Wales will tuck in to a hearty early-morning platter.

Mr Davies said: “I am looking forward to sampling some great Welsh breakfast produce at this year’s Farmhouse Breakfast. I’ve been working to support and promote Welsh food and produc.

“Last month we published a new action plan to drive growth and I’ve put that commitment into action immediately by leading a trade mission to the new and growing markets for Welsh lamb and beef in the US and Canada.

"Frukostevenemanget är ett utmärkt tillfälle att marknadsföra walesisk mat och jordbruksprodukter hemma och träffa människor från jordbruket och landsbygden för att diskutera nyckelfrågor som påverkar dem.

“While at the breakfast, I am also launching the Agri-Academy for 2014 which provides advice and support to budding farming entrepreneurs and rural leaders in Wales.”

The FUW’s Caernarfonshire county branch breakfasts – with proceeds shared between Mr Jones’ chosen charities Tŷ Hafan and Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospices as well as Gwynedd Hospitals Breast Cancer Research Fund – will be held on the following days between 7.30 and 10.30:
