What is Slow Food Barbados?

Slow Food Barbados is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with millions of supporters in 164 countries that link the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. Slow Food seeks to steward a dramatic and lasting change in the food system. At Slow Food Barbados we reconnect Barbadians with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food while protecting the rich heritage, traditions and culture that food makes possible. Further- more, we want to reinvigorate the youth’s interest in food and bestow on them the knowledge about where it comes from.

What began as a shared passion for good quality food, a worrying trend of burgeoning food imports and the recognition to reconnect farmers with the community culminated into the formal induction of the Barbados chapter of Slow Food in September 2012 through a partnership with the local Organic Growers and Consumers Association. Slow Food envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy local food that is good, clean and fair.

Our overall aim is simple.

We believe in the fundamental right to the basic pleasures of quality local food and consequently, the responsibility to protect the heritage of food, tradition and culture that make such pleasure possible.

We aim to acknowledge and celebrate local farmers, chefs, eateries and artisans who contribute to good, clean, fair food and to spread awareness of the Slow Food philosophy and the establishments that support it.
