The Slow Food Movement started in Italy in 1986 to counter the rise of fast food, fast life and the disappearance of local food traditions and food diversity.

Did you know that 100 years ago we ate between 100-120 different species of food and today our diet is made up of only 10-12 species?

Increased industrialisation has led to mass production and the homogenisation of most of our food.

At aboutlife, we embrace sustainable practices, community and the environment. In support of the Slow Food Movement we have selected a range of Slow Food cheeses for our artisan cheese counters.

Piacentinu Ennese is a Northern Italian cheese made from sheep’s milk. It is full bodied, somewhat spicy and flavoured with saffron and black peppercorns.

Monte Veronese di Malga is also a North Italian cheese made from unpasteurised cow’s milk. Matured for 3 years to create a dry crumbly texture, it has a sharp bite and fruity overtones.

Beaufort is made from the raw milk from cows grazing in the Rhone-Alpes of France. This cheese is creamy, floral, herbaceous and nutty.

Support your health through food diversity…

Next time you’re buying cheese choose one of our Slow Food cheeses and not only will you enjoy the unique taste, you’ll be supporting local farming traditions, community and the environment.

‘Slow Food unites the pleasure of food with responsibility, sustainability and harmony with nature’  Carlo Petrini, Slow Food founder and president.
