Traditional Slovenian breakfast at the Embassy of Slovenia in Copenhagen

The Embassy of Slovenia in Copenhagen today organized Traditional Slovenian Breakfast. The project was carried out in kindergartens and primary schools throughout Slovenia. During the first hour of school, children breakfasted on brown bread, honey, butter, milk and apples, all of which were of Slovenian origin.  The Traditional Slovenian Breakfast project was initiated by the Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association, later joined by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food; the Ministry of Education and Sport; the Ministry of Health; the Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry of Slovenia; the Chamber of Agricultural and Food Enterprises of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia; and the Institute of Public Health of the Republic of Slovenia.

The main goal of the project, which is to be a recurring event, is to educate, inform and raise the awareness of the youngest children and children of school age, and to some extent also the general public, on the importance of breakfast for our eating habits, on the importance and advantages of locally produced food, and on the importance of agriculture and beekeeping.

Slovenian Embassy in Copenhagen is traditionally participating in promoting this initiative and today we organized the "Traditional Slovenian Breakfast" at the Embassy's premises. Ambassador Tone Kajzer invited a Danish Businessman Mr. Carsten Philipsen to join us at the breakfast with the embassy's team, where we had the opportunity to discuss the possibilities for strengthening cooperation between Slovenia and Denmark, also in the light of upcoming business event we are organizing at the premises of Danish Chamber of Commerce on 30th November.
