Slow Food Almanac is online!

 Facts, figures & stories from the worldwide Slow Food network.

 Slow Food is pleased to present the new online Almanac: a colorful illustrated publication produced in six languages with facts, figures, stories and an overview of the organization’s membership, projects and finances through the year 2016.

Here is a preview of some of the highlights:

  • Rwanda’s first Slow Food Presidium was set up to promote the Inyambo cow, a local breed under threat from a production-centric agricultural policy. The Inyambo cow is gradually being replaced by Friesians, which are expensive to rear and poorly suited to the country’s environment and climate. This story wants to show that local knowledge and traditions do not stand in contrast to modernity and social progress, but complement them.

Slow Food is a global grassroots organization that envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet. Slow Food involves over a million activists, chefs, experts, youth, farmers, fishers and academics in over 160 countries. Among them, a network of around 100,000 Slow Food members are linked to 1,500 local chapters worldwide, contributing through their membership fee, as well as the events and campaigns they organize. As part of the network, more than 2,400 Terra Madre food communities practice small-scale and sustainable production of quality food around the world.
