One place where our planet’s future will be decided is at the dining table: The food we choose to buy and the dishes we choose to eat are of vital importance.
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.
Since its beginnings, Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people in over 160 countries, working to ensure everyone has access to good, clean and fair food.

You can contribute to ensuring food is:
Eating should be a pleasure for everyone. We all have the right to food that is delicious, wholesome, natural, fresh and seasonal.
Being informed allows us to make choices that are good for our health and that of the planet on which we live.
Understanding our food means making the right choices for us, for producers and for future generations.
Slow Food has been working for 30 years to defend biodiversity and combat the climate crisis, promoting good, clean and fair food for all.
