Slow Food is good, clean and fair food.
We believe that the food we eat should taste good;
that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health;
and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.
Slow Food works to defend biodiversity in our food supply, spread taste education and connect producers of excellent foods with co-producers through events and initiatives.
