The Australian Ark of Taste catalogue has now reached 51 approved products and another 6 nominated foods that are awaiting approval.
‘This is a great effort of our Australian convivia across the country, especially considering that the number of products from Australia boarded on the Ark of Taste has more than doubled in the last year’ says National Ark of Taste Working Group Leader Vince Velletri: ‘I’m hoping the number will continue to grow – we’re aiming to reach 100 by our next national Conference in Mildura in November 2016’.
Slow Food in Australia is encouraging everybody to actively seek more products to nominate to ensure protection and continuity of our Australian (food) biodiversity. Products boarded on the Slow Food International Ark of Taste are at risk of disappearing and will be actively protected and promoted by Slow Food convivia around the world to ensure we don’t lose them for future generations.
