Slow Food Perth County is a convivium whose main goals are to connect food producers with consumers and to support and advocate for food choices that are good, clean and fair. That is to say, food that tastes good, is not harmful to humans, animals or our environment and for which producers earn fair wage.

Our goal is to make good, clean, fair food – and education about food provenance and preparation – accessible to everyone. The convivium plans events throughout the year to further this cause and to share in the amazing bounty of our unique region and its superior terroir that lends to our food’s superb flavour and character.

What is Slow Food?

Slow Food is working to help communities around the world to rebuild their local food systems in order to eat better, protect the environment and maintain cultural diversity.

Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1986 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.

To do that, Slow Food brings together pleasure and responsibility, and makes them inseparable.

Today, we have over 100,000 members in 132 countries.
