The Philippines' First All-Opinion Website

July 28, 2018


Since 2014, World Food Expo (WOFEX) has been supporting Slow Food Manila and the other Slow Food communities through the exhibition of Ark of Taste products.

WOFEX President Joel Pascual has also given Slow Food a venue for its various activities: the 2014 Food taste workshops, 2015 Slow Food grazing lunch curated by Jenny Pascual of Move Feast, and the Feed a Farmer lunch last 2016 participated in by top chefs Margarita Fores and Chef Robby Goco (including Sustainable Seafood’s Meliomar, ECHOstore, Down to Earth, Pamora Farms, Chef Jam Melchor and his Slow Food Youth, and other Slow Food members).

After four years of offering different activities and displays, Slow Food now partners with Iisla Ventures to mount Philippine Sustainable Gastronomy. It is a wrap up of the past years’ exhibits and an introduction to the new phase for the Slow Food movement.

For one Slow Food will now promote activities all year round such as Earth markets, Slow Food gardens and even Slow Travel.

Every December will still be Terra Madre Day on December 10 and every other September (like this year) will still be the main Terra Madre in Turin, Italy.

At the Philippine Sustainable Gastronomy, Slow Food and Iisla ventures have invited advocates and experts in the realm of good clean and fair food. Added features are the Food Waste talks and how we all can help in making production and consumption sustainable.

From a simple display of Ark of Taste products in 2014 WOFEX and Slow Food Manila with a new partner Iisla Ventures, it has evolved into an annual event—one that could be replicated in Asia as a Regional Sustainable Gastronomy event.
