Plymouth University Slow Food Society

About this group

Slow Food is an international organisation that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.

Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.

The University of Plymouth Slow Food Society supports and collaborates with the Slow Food Organization a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

By actively encouraging membership from students and staff with interests in: sustainability, biodiversity, nutrition, social eating, cooking and ‘good’ food; we aim to become a multidisciplinary society, active in the social, educational and political aspects of food production and consumption.

We are currently in development so there may be exciting opportunities for you to become an officer and take the lead in your specific area of interest!
