Slow Food is an international movement opposed to the “standardization of taste and culture, and the unrestrained power of the food industry multinationals and industrial agriculture.” It envisions globalization as a process in which small and local farmers and food producers should be simultaneously protected from and included in the global food system: its web site claims, “we believe that everyone has a fundamental right to the pleasure of good food and consequently the responsibility to protect the heritage of food, tradition and culture that make this pleasure possible”. Unlike many “antiglobalization” movements that oppose global processes and markets, Slow Food encourages the global adaptation of local and traditional.

Abstract

Slow Food is an international movement opposed to the “standardization of taste and culture, and the unrestrained power of the food industry multinationals and industrial agriculture.” It envisions globalization as a process in which small and local farmers and food producers should be simultaneously protected from and included in the global food system: its web site claims, “we believe that everyone has a fundamental right to the pleasure of good food and consequently the responsibility to protect the heritage of food, tradition and culture that make this pleasure possible”. Unlike many “antiglobalization” movements that oppose global processes and markets, Slow Food encourages the global adaptation of local and traditional.
