A Very English Breakfast

A Very English BreakfastHave you ever wondered where the phrase ‘English Breakfast’ comes from? Or what makes it different to an Irish or Welsh Breakfast? Read on to discover the history behind this traditional meal, and why Brits’ passion for it remains as strong as ever.

Although tea was first considered an afternoon beverage when it was brought to British shores, it soon became an essential morning serve.

The growth of the morning market

The growth of the morning marketAs consumers’ lifestyles become increasingly busy, and the health benefits of consuming ‘the most important meal of the day’ are realised, the out of home breakfast market continues to grow.

Lack of time is the main reason consumers skip breakfast, so an offer that allows consumers to grab and go, such as tea and a muffin, is the key to winning this morning trade. The number of breakfast occasions in foodservice grew by 8.4 per cent to 1.14 billion year-on-year, according to NPD Crest research, and growth shows no sign of decline. The British trend mimics that of America, where breakfast makes up around a fifth of the out of home market.

Mintel research shows that as many as 12% of Brits drink green tea on a weekly basis, demonstrating the nation’s love for this blend.

Although sales are growing at a consistent rate in the UK, demand for the blend is nothing new. Green tea originated in China, and consumption spread throughout Asia. Cultivated from the same plant as black tea, Camellia Sinensis – the difference comes from a delayed oxidisation process, which helps green tea retain its fresh, uplifting flavour.
