Defending Food Biodiversity and Promoting Good, Clean and Fair Food for All

Slow Food Kenya

Food and Taste Education activities continue to play a critical role in creating awareness on the difference between high quality products and standardized alternatives.

What We Do

We save endangered foods and defend cultural food traditions.

Ark of Taste

In 1996, Slow Food created the Ark of Taste, an online catalogue that identifies and catalogues traditional quality foods and flavors that are disappearing day by day. Learn More


The Presidia sustain quality production of species at risk of extinction, protect unique regions and ecosystems, and recover traditional processing methods, safeguard native breeds and local plant varieties. Learn More
