Slow Food

Slow Food is an international non-profit association committed to give the right value to food. It aims to respect all those who produce food in harmony with the environment and the ecosystems while preserving knowledge embedded in territories and local traditions. Slow Food works everyday in over 150 different countries to promote good, clean and fair food for everybody.

The Milan Protocol is a great opportunity to tune up a common feeling of awareness, thus creating many opportunities for future changes, with a number of projects that involve institutions, non-governmental organizations, companies and farms.

Slow Food has accompanied from the beginning the conception process of this document. The work done so far is an excellent way to approach all fields and issues related to food. It is increasingly urgent to have fruitful reflections and share news actions and ideas.

The main goal is to rethink our idea of well-being, happiness and coexistence. Unlike nowadays'dominant vision of measurable and economic growth, the qualitative aspect is well-considered. Only productive and radical attitudes may trigger and envisage changes.

In our view, the Milan Protocol will be a visionary, political and operational document. Whoever signs and supports it (in particular industries and governments) is formally committed to it. This consists in setting clear objectives allowing production policies with long-term, traceable and verifiable actions.

It is only with the work of many people around the world that we will be able to pursue an important vision: accessible food for all by not compromising the Planet and human beings'health. Food is a unifying and socializing element between people, it is the transmission of traditional wisdoms and, more importantly, a source of nourishment for our bodies and souls.
