Scotland clearly has its own unique food cultures, as well as many challenges, and we are playing our part to make a positive difference. Truly, we believe in ‘good food, clean and fair food for everyone’.
We have several programmes running in Scotland. Our Ark of Taste initiative has recorded and ‘boarded’ nearly fifty rare, traditional food products. And our Slow Food Chefs’ Aliance, a network of local chefs, has grown to over 25 chefs committed to bringing those forgotten foods to a wider public and being more sustainable as a business.
We also run educational events for children, support small artisan producers and organise Scottish representation at global events like Terra Madre.
We support the Scottish Slow Food Youth Movement and their activities as part of the worldwide Slow Food Youth Network.
As a grassroots, volunteer organisation, our success depends on the commitment and energy of our members and partners. And your membership money ensures that we can continue to campaign and act effectively in Scotland.
When you join Slow Food Scotland, you will be automatically allocated to your nearest convivium (group). There are Slow Food Scotland groups in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen City and Shire.There is also a virtual group to cater for many of the far-flung areas where there is no formal convivium.
