Our main goal is to encourage responsible food choices by our citizens, allowing us to move towards a healthier population and planet.

Slow Food Glasgow follows the Slow Food ethos of good, clean and fair food for everyone. We inspire people to take part in the public debate about current issues around food, such as how to tackle food waste, malnutrition and obesity, the intangible cultural value of food and how to produce food as sustainably as possible.

Learning how to create a more sustainable future together.

Slow Food Glasgow was founded in 2016 as a network of people with different backgrounds and ages but all with a shared interest in finding a common path towards a more sustainable food future by learning, debating, campaigning, farming, cooking and eating.

Our approach is to think global, act local—knowing that positive actions made within local communities contribute to collective change on a global level reminds us that we're part of something bigger.

We’re also committed to creating constructive dialogue with national and international communities and with other change-making organisations

Our Philosophy

Slow Food envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet. Our approach is based on a concept of food that is defined by three interconnected principles: good, clean and fair. These three  guiding principles are at the core of all our projects.


Encouraging the consumption of nourishing, flavoursome and quality food.


Promoting sustainable food production that does not bring harm the environment.


Advocating fair conditions and pay for producers, and accessible prices for consumers.

Through learning, celebrating and campaigning we’re putting all this into practice.
