Slow Food fights to preserve food biodiversity in all corners of the world


Through Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity we coordinate projects that defend local food traditions, protect food communities, preserve food biodiversity and promote quality artisanal products, with an increasing focus on the global south:

 

Presidia – Working with groups of small-scale producers to sustain quality food productions at risk of extinction in over 400 projects...

 

The Ark of Taste – Cataloging endangered traditional foods: an extraordinary heritage of fruits, vegetables, animal breeds, cheeses, breads, sweets and cured meats...

 

Earth Markets – Building an international network of farmers’ markets that promote good, clean and fair food…

 

The Alliance of Chefs - Uniting over 300 chefs with local small-scale producers…

 

10,000 Gardens in Africa – Our plan to create 10,000 food gardens across the continent; in schools, villages and the outskirts of cities…

 

Narrative labels - Going beyond legal labeling requirements to provide the whole story of a product...

 

Founded in 2003, the Slow Food Foundation is funded in partnership with the Tuscany Regional Authority and through support from institutions, private companies, and other foundations. It guarantees transparency in the use of the funds received and produces an annual Social Report.
