Key programs

Slow Food Farmers Back-up Project

There are farmers who farm behind-the-scenes to keep the co-existence of humans, nature and earth happy. The nation-wide Slow Food Farmers Back-up Project aims to support sustainability of slow food farmers by becoming co-producers ourselves.

Slow Cha

Slow Cha introduces Korean, Chinese and Japanese teas. Tea lovers get a chance to reflect on the value of Asian tea and the need to spread the tea culture. They also can take part in the warm and savory network between producers and consumers.

Slow Food Kids

Kids take part in various events and programs for hands-on experience with their parents to learn that food, farming and eating are not only fun but good for the world. The program also introduces safe and healthy food to promote the right eating habits.
