Help shape the future of Slow Food

As one of our valued friends, we'd love to hear what you think.

As we move deeper into 2017, we’re reviewing what we've achieved in the past year and looking to the future too.

We are asking just 10 questions, plus a handful of optional demographic questions.

Ten questions - ten minutes to help shape the future of Slow Food: whether a member or not, we want to hear from you.

At the end of the survey you can - optionally - be entered into a draw to win a £75 raw cheese hamper as a thank you for your time.
