The Slow Food Movement
The food production and consumption systems most common today are harmful to the earth, to its ecosystems and to the peoples that inhabit it. Taste, biodiversity, the health of humans and animals, well-being and nature are coming under continuous attack. This jeopardizes the very urge to eat and produce food as gastronomes and exercise the right to pleasure without harming the existence of others or the environmental equilibria of the planet we live on.
The Slow Food movement has spread all over the world, with local hubs dedicated to championing a new way to grow, prepare, serve and eat food.
