Organization Profile

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. Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Slow Food has over 80,000 members in 100 countries. Its headquarters are in Bra, Italy. Slow Food organizes large-scale biennial events, including Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto, as well as publishing books on food and wine, running the University of Gastronomic Sciences and supporting the growth of the movement around the world. www.slowfood.com
