Ark of taste / The Ark identifies, catalogues and promotes forgotten foods at risk of loss from industrialisation, over-zealous health bureaucracies and high-demand supermarket distribution chains. Australian Ark foods include the bull-boar sausage, Kangaroo Island ligurian bee honey, bunya nut, and Tasmanian leatherwood honey.
Praesidia / Slow Food’s praesidia programme was developed in 2000 to help artisan food producers. These small-scale projects protect traditional production methods by supporting producers in their communities and helping them to find markets for traditional foods. The programme began with just two projects in Italy and now encompasses more than 300 across the world.
University of gastronomic sciences / Australians are among the alumni of the University of Gastronomic Sciences, established by Slow Food in Italy in 2003 in conjunction with the regional authorities of Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont. This private university offers undergraduate, post-graduate and masters’ programmes in which alumni work to renew farming methods, protect food diversity and foster knowledge of the organic relationship between food and agricultural science.
