Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto
Terra Madre and Salone Del Gusto
October 25-29, 2012
Invitation for SF members to apply for delegate status at Terra Madre and for Producers to Display at Salone Del Gusto 2012
This year, Terra Madre and the Congress are open to the public. Terra Madre is a biennial Slow Food event in Turin, Italy, that unites more than 5,000 producers, cooks, academics and activists creating a parallel system of food production and distribution. The Congress is the gathering of leaders representing the grassroots movement in their communities. Salone del Gusto is a public event that welcomes over 200,000 visitors over five days – a feast of the best – artisan, Ark of Taste and Presida products globally.
This is a two pronged invitation:
Slow Food Nova Scotia – mainland will have the opportunity to send 4 or possibly 5 delegates to Terra Madre. This means that you are a guest of Slow Food and your entrance fees, daily meals and accomodations are taken care of. Observer status is also available but only covers your admission fees to the event.
IF YOU ARE A CURRENT SLOW FOOD MEMBER AND ARE INTERESTED IN DELEGATE (or observer) STATUS, PLEASE EMAIL ME BY April 30th
Also, as Salone Del Gusto and Terra Madre are being combined into one event this year, Slow Food Canada has been asked to invite food producers from across Canada to exhibit at Salone Del Gusto. If you are a producer looking for new markets and a chance to show off your product to a potential 200,000 visitors please contact. There may some provincial support for this initiative – I am in early discussions with several Provincial Ministries to see about a collaborative effort to bring Nova Scotia products and producers to Torino
