SLOW FOOD is a worldwide grassroot movement to improve our food and the system surrounding it.

SLOW FOOD is a social movement to protect

GOOD  Delicious and healthy,

CLEAN Environmentally friendly, and

FAIR  Food culture which legitimately evaluate the producers, thus secure the biodiversity of food.

It is generalized by Slow Food International with its international HQ located in Italy.

Slow Food International was founded in Italy, 1989, considering the fact that people are losing interest in food due to losing the agricultural products & culture taken root in the local area, and the rise of fast life・fast food. The foundation now has branch offices in more than 160 nations, with a network of over million people.

Recently in Japan, there are 21 branch offices and communities.

A group of youngsters named YOUTH is making a “Disco Soup” event in order to prevent food waste.

In addition, the GMO / Genome Editing Free Project started in FY2020.

Once every two years, the world event of slow food "Terra Madre Salone del Gusto" is held in Turin, Italy.
