Slow Food, is dedicated to preserving and supporting traditional ways of growing, producing and preparing food. Founded in 1986, in direct response to the opening of a McDonald’s restaurant in Rome’s famous Piazza di Spagna, the Slow Food Manifesto declares that:

A firm defense of quiet material pleasure is the only way to oppose the universal folly of Fast Life.

Hence, MLH endorses their strong link between plate and planet.
