Take a bite of locally produced high-quality meat from Slow Food Brisbane at the Hamilton Town Hall.

Slow Food Brisbane is hosting Slow Meat on Friday, 23 March 2018 (7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.) at the Hamilton Town Hall, Brisbane. Enjoy guiltless, high-quality meat from small- and medium-scale producers who respect animal welfare and encourage awareness of better, cleaner, and fairer consumption habits.

“Slow food” started in Italy in 1989 to counteract “fast food.” With the globalisation of fast food, local food traditions began to disappear and people started to lose interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes, and how their food choices affect the environment.

The Slow Food movement founder, Carlo Petrini aims to encourage interest in the origins of food, preservation of local food culture and the connection between what we eat and the world at large.

Slow Food follows three interconnected principles in food quality. These are good, clean, and fair food production. Good food means fresh and flavorful seasonal diet which satisfies the senses and are locally produced. Clean food refers to food produced in harmony with the environment while fair production means providing the right prices for consumers and fair conditions for small-scale producers.

In this event, Slow Food Brisbane is promoting Slow Meat as an answer to the problems raised by industrial agriculture which includes ecological, public health, and animal welfare concerns. This philosophy promises a “delicious future” for meat lovers.
