The Slow Food Chefs’ Alliance in the UK joins the international network of chefs defending food biodiversity across the world

The Slow Food Chefs’ Alliance is an international project which is engaged in the battle for the protection of agricultural and food biodiversity all over the world. The Alliance is made up of chefs who have agreed a pact with Slow Food Presidia and Ark of Taste producers and all local producers who cultivate with respect for the concepts of good, clean and fair. The chefs are committed to adding the names of the producers they buy from to their menus, giving added importance and visibility to their work. The goal is to stimulate the creation of a circuit in the local economy, which helps find a market for these authentic products that are often ignored by large retailers. The chefs are committed to buying and working with local raw materials from this network of farmers, breeders, fishermen, butchers, bakers and artisans who safeguard traditional techniques and knowledge
