FOOD, TERRITORY, AND DECOLONIZATION
A PROFILE OF THE SLOW FOOD MOVEMENT
The purpose of this article is to propose a reflection on the centrality of food and its bias in relation to territoriality as a path towards decolonization, for this purpose it uses an overview of the Slow Food movement, based on its main principles and actions for the valorization of the place and ways of doing and living. The study bases the triad: food, territory and decolonization and discusses the possibility of it forming a basis in the construction of relations of thought and actions capable of converging in processes of development and decolonization. The Slow Food movement, in addition to permeating the concepts of territoriality and decolonization, adds an element of contemporaneity between the “worlds” of the local and the market in a challenge to build a globalized reality, but based on the pluriversal, diversity and uniqueness as element of wealth, protagonism and foundation for integral development.
