    Slow Food UK

    Email:

    Slow Food is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. It was founded in 1989 in Italy. Slow Food UK aims to achieve long-term change in the thematic areas of biodiversity (preserving threatened foods and strengthening local economies through assisting small-scale producers and building short-supply chains), taste education (creating a better understanding and appreciation of the important connection between health, local food culture and agriculture) and food communities (connecting producers to consumers, creating awareness that showcases sustainable agriculture and artisan food production). This exchange of information, ideas, advice and practices takes place largely in three interconnected spheres: 1) at the national level among UK member groups and other collaborative actors; 2) at the international level linking UK groups to member groups around the world, including technical experts and other actors involved in food issues; and 3) by connecting and empowering farming and food communities in developed and developing countries – which is often refered to as the Terra Madre (Mother Earth) network – that are also impacted by the food choices and policies in the UK.
