Local Craft Brewing, Slow Food, & Local Sourcing – PART I


The Slow Food Movement is based on organic farming and sustainability. It stands for fair and clean food and combines the different interests of consumers and food producers by underlining the common values. Over the last five years, Slow Food has now grown from an amateur club to a brand and lifestyle movement with international appeal.

Wikipedia defines slow food as an international movement founded by Carlo Petrini in 1986. Originally promoted as an alternative to fast food, it strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem. It was the first established part of the broader Slow Movement. The movement has since expanded globally to over 100,000 members in 150 countries. Its goals of sustainable foods and promotion of local small businesses are paralleled by a political agenda directed against globalization of agricultural products.

The Slow Life or Slow Lifestyle refers to the focus on a slower and more aware way of living and consuming. Pleasure and authenticity through a return to older traditions are at the forefront of this movement. In the Slow Life, nature is rediscovered as something that gives structure to our lives and organizes oneself according to natural rhythms, which is reflected in the way we change with the seasons and use seasonal products. The term Slow Food also refers to a trend toward growing food traditionally, using regional products and thoughtful preparation methods. Community, neighborhood and local value-added chains are becoming more important in the Slow Life movement. People involved in this trend want to take good care of body and soul and live in harmony with nature.

Until next time.
