About us

We are members of the global Slow Food movement. We want to draw attention to the small-scale food and drinks producers for the excellent work they are doing.

We have the good, clean and fair philosophy in mind when choosing places to visit. That is, the food we eat should taste good, it should be produced in a clean way such that it does not harm the environment, nor the animals being raised, nor ourselves, and the food producers should receive a fair compensation for their work.

Slow Food members are not only consumers, but also co-producers because they affect what is being produced by their purchases of foods and drinks. Slow Food likes to call this kind of thinking neo-gastronomy recognising the strong connection between plate and planet.

We have no economic interests in any of the enterprises we are visiting and we are doing this project in our spare time.
