Some Background About Terra Madre
Slow Food International holds a bi-annual gathering in Turin, Italy called Terra Madre Salone del Gusto. Seven-thousand delegates from 160 countries, over 800 exhibitors, 300 Slow Food Presidia, and 500 Terra Madre food communities took part in the event in 2018.
The theme of Terra Madre 2018 was Food for Change. Event participants were asked to reflect on their food choices: what production methods they support, what they cook, what they put in their shopping cart. Every day the food we choose brings up questions about our health, but also the environment, social justice, economics, politics and many greater issues.
