National Bread Week is back! From the 10-16th September 2018, bread lovers from all over Ireland will be showing the loaf some love, as they celebrate National Bread Week. Bakers, millers and retailers across the country will be joining in the fun and reminding us why we’re a nation of #BreadLovers.

Steeped in tradition, bread is part of our heritage and psyche – even the smell of it makes 9 out of 10 (89%) of us happy, and a third of us eat bread every day. We may call it different names from a Grinder to a Turnover or even a Duck, but we are ALL united in our love for the loaf.


Organised by Ireland’s bakers, National Bread Week will be reminding the nation about all that bread offers – from its versatility, convenience and delicious taste to its nutritional benefits and the role it plays in a healthy, balanced diet.

Look out for tastings, competitions, events and the opportunity to try some different breads.

Join in the conversations on Facebook @NationalBreadWeek or Twitter @LoveYourLoaf and make sure to share your #BreadLover stories.
