Our Idea of Europe

Since it was founded more than 20 years ago, Slow Food has defended small-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.

Future policies are bound to affect all of us. Which is why we invite all European citizens to join the debate and also … join Slow Food.
