Shane Holland chairman of Slow Food London visited Morley Butchers in Crouch End to present the 2014 London Best Butchers award. The Slow Food London Awards are a real seal of approval because the entrants and the final winners are all selected by London food shoppers.
We are very proud and delighted to receive the London Best Butchers award. The enthusiasm of our customers is really appreciated. Andrew Beresford – Morley Butchers
These awards were created by Slow Food London in 2013 to support and highlight the growing number of quality food retailers and producers within London which are the polar opposite of supermarkets . In their awards statement Slow Food London said “The London Best Butchers award to Morley Butchers recognises excellence in their butchery, time-honed skills, as well as their impressive range of game and quality meat.”
Slow Food London
Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.
A non-profit member-supported association, Slow Food was founded in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
Slow Food is categorised by Good, Clean and Fair – that is food which is good quality, produced in a sustainable way which doesn’t damage the environment and for which both the producer and the consumer get a fair price.
Slow Food London is a group of committed volunteers. They campaign and raise awareness about good, clean and fair food. People in the UK are increasingly aware of the social, economic and environmental impact of our daily food choices. They work to bring people together to create change through:
- school and food education initiatives
- the promotion of local and regional foods
- projects to safeguard the biodiversity of the United Kingdom
