Meet the Team

The Slow Food international headquarters are located in Bra, Italy – the town in Piedmont where the movement was born.

It is from here that the foundation coordinates the development of the global movement and plans activities.

In 2013 Slow Food opened its Brussels office, which is at the forefront of our fight for a better food and farming system in the EU
