About Slow Food

Slow Food was started in Italy by Carlo Petrini and a group of activists in the 1980s. They started the movement as an alternative to fast food and as a way to preserve traditional and regional cuisine. The movement stressed quality, sustainability, biodiversity, and social justice.The movement has spread globally and now has more than 100,000 members in 150 countries.
