Slow Food Society

An organization born in Pollenzo, Italy in 1986 to promote the concept of eco-gastronomy and the connections between the planet and the plate. This is being done by building relationships between consumers and producers at local levels – so helping to protect traditional foods. Tastings are also organised, to encourage chefs to source locally.

A British section was set up towards the end of 2006, with its headquarters in Ludlow (but has since moved to London), and local 'convivia' are sprouting up around the country.
