Support Slow Food

Food Producers, Local Business, Local Policymakers

Slow Food is an international movement founded in 1986. Promoted as an alternative to fast food, it strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem. The movement promotes sustainable foods and local small businesses and it campaigns against the globalisation of agricultural products.

The principles of Slow Food can be summed by the Seven Pillars:
– Access to good, clean and fair food
– Agricultural and food biodiversity
– Small-scale food production
– Food sovereignty
– Language, culture and traditional knowledge
– Environmentally responsible food production
– Fair and sustainable trade
