Our Idea of Europe

Since it was founded more than 20 years ago, Slow Food has defendedsmall-scale traditional food producers and raised awareness among consumers at the grassroots level. Its aim is to create a more responsible food system, based on the pleasure and sharing of good, clean and fair food.
