Ark of Taste
Slow Food has created the Ark of Taste, which collects plants, animals and food products at risk of extinction that belong to the culture, history and traditions of communities around the world.
This extraordinary heritage of fruits, vegetables, animal breeds, cheeses, breads…helps to draw attention to their existence and to the risk of their extinction within a few generations. Everyone can take action to help protect them. In some cases this might be by buying and consuming them, in some by telling their story and supporting their producers, and in others, such as the case of endangered wild species, this might mean eating less or none of them in order to preserve them.
