The commercial meat industry has a completely opposing view that displays a blatant disregard for consumer, animal and farmer well-being, and is destroying the environment in the process. In this article, Stefano Liberti, author and friend of Slow Food, explores one of the enormous, global problems of industrialized meat production, namely the vast overpopulation of animals being raised for us to eat.

World Disco Soup Day
This year the Slow Food Youth Network has decided to organize the first Global Disco Soup Day. While in some parts of the world people suffer from hunger, one third of the food intended for human consumption is being thrown away – that’s 1.3 billion of tons of food in the bin every year. It’s clear we have a huge challenge ahead of us. Time for action!
We are inviting everyone from the Slow Food Youth Network and beyond to start their own Disco Soup event on April 29th 2017. Join us and fill bellies instead of bins!
