Terra Madre Nordic, the first meeting of the Nordic Slow Food

Copenhagen Meat Packing District, April 27-29

Terra Madre Nordic is the meeting of the Nordic Slow Food network of small-scale, high-quality producers, activists, academics and cooks. The event is funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers; partners in the project include Slow Food communities from across the Nordic Countries, as well as several organizations, institutions and companies.

Over the weekend of 27th-29th April 2018, there will be a marketplace showcasing producers, Slow Food, like-minded organizations and more. A range of taste workshops and moderated tastings will focus on product pairings and production methods, while talks, panels and debates will explore the politics of food. The program will put together 80 Exhibitors, Taste Workshops, debates, conferences, talks, and 200 Slow Food activists are expected from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, The Faroe Islands, Åland, Sapmi.

The objectives are to start a dialogue across the Nordic countries about sustainable food production and consumption, create stronger, dedicated networks and relaunch the conversation about good, clean and fair New Nordic Food.

The event is being held in Copenhagen Food Space, Copenhagen House of Food and other locations in the Meatpacking district. The marketplace is open Saturday, 28th of April, 10-18, and again Sunday, 29th of April, 10-16.
