A STORY OF BIODIVERSITY

Slow Food has focused on defended biodiversity through its projects to protect the extraordinary food heritage of our planet. This journey began in Italy, which is so rich in traditional techniques, native species and rural landscapes, in 1999, with the foundation of one of Slow Food’s keystone projects: the Presidia. These projects support small-scale, traditional products at risk of extinction, restoring value to local areas, recovering centuries-old skills and saving native animals breeds and vegetable varieties from extinction. There are over 600 Presidia spread across 79 countries, with 350 in Italy alone, involving thousands of food producers.
