Slow Food Uganda is part of Slow Food international, a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.
Since its beginnings, Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people in over 160 countries, working to ensure everyone has access to good, clean and fair food.
good because it is healthy as well as having enjoyable sensory qualities;
clean because it is mindful of the environment and animal welfare;
fair because it is respectful of the work of the people who produce, process, and distribute it.
