Who is a Breadfruit Champion?

 

Our Breadfruit Champions are recognised and respected leaders in the breadfruit community. Some are individuals and others are organisations, they come from different countries, fields and walks of life, but…the one thing that they all have in common is their love for breadfruit.  

 

Let us introduce you to some of our Breadfruit Champions…
