Slow Food Cymru Wales has a simple mission – Good, Clean and Fair Food for all.
Wales is renown worldwide for the quality of its produce and Welsh Lamb, Beef, Seafood, etc. are highly sought after. The Ark of Taste project seeks to preserve ‘Forgotten Foods’ that are in danger of being lost and a number of Welsh products are already included, such as, the Badger Face Welsh Mountain Sheep, the Pedigree Welsh Pig and Penclawdd Cockles. Slow Food Cymru Wales will continue to identify and propose further items.
Through the Chef’s Alliance we work with local chefs to promote sustainable food and local producers. We also encourage them to use ingredients from the Ark of Taste in their menu creation.
We are aligned with Slow Food International and ensure that their aims and objectives are accurately reflected in the campaigns that we support. We support the Slow Food Youth Network, we liaise with Government and political representatives and align ourselves with other national groups that share our aims and objectives.
We have organised ourselves into four main regions, South East, South West, Mid and North to follow the Welsh Government’s regional structure. When you join Slow Food Cymru Wales you can select your preferred convivium (local group).
As a grassroots, volunteer led organisation we are dependent on the support and commitment of our members and offer plenty of opportunities to get involved if desired. No matter how involved you wish to be, you can be assured that your subscription will be funding national and regional food education and campaigns in Wales.
