About Us

Our Mission

We believe that everyone has the right to good, clean, and fair food.

Slow Food Kenya

Established in 2014, Slow Food Kenya is an affiliate of Slow Food International, a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us. The goal of Slow Food Kenya is to defend food biodiversity (local and indigenous food), promote Agroecology and advocate for a better food system.


The association supports small-scale farmers to rediscover themselves and promote their cultural food traditions with pride and dignity. Today, Slow Food Kenya brings together over 60 local chapters (Convivia) and Food communities that are spread in fifteen Counties involving thousands of small-scale farmers, students, indigenous communities, cooks, academics among others.

Our Vision

We envision a country in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them; good for those who grows it and good for the planet.

We believe that everyone has the right to good, clean, and fair food.
Good: food should taste good and be rooted in season, place, and culture.
Clean: food and farming should promote health and well-being, preserve agricultural resources, protect the environment and biodiversity, and ensure animal welfare.
Fair: food should be accessible and affordable to all, and should provide dignity and fair compensation to workers at every link in the food chain.
