    Türkiye

    The Slow Food movement not only encourages people to take the time to prepare and eat whole, locally sourced foods, but it also aims to preserve culture and heritage, which are slowly being erased by fast foods “instant gratification” mindset. The core principle is that everyone has a right to good, clean, and fair food. The Slow Food movement believes food is tied to many other aspects of life, including culture, politics, agriculture, and the environment. Through our food choices we can collectively influence how food is cultivated, produced, and distributed, and change the world as a result.
