'Slow Food' Movement Heads To China To Promote Local Foods

By Brian Spaen

As China’s population continues to grow, the country is adopting the “Slow Food” movement. Their first village, created by Stefano Boeri Architetti (SBA), was recently presented at the 16th Venice Biennial. It’s expected to be the first of 1,000 Slow Food villages in China over the next five years.

What is the Slow Food movement? No, it doesn’t involve restaurants that still put condiments in glass bottles, forcing you to painfully wait for ketchup on your plate. It’s a campaign that promotes good, clean, and fair food for all communities around the world. The movement originated back in 1989 in Italy and has now spread to over 160 countries.
