The Slow Meat mantra is 'eat better meat, less'. This event is for supporters, enablers, and enactors of the Slow Meat philosophy to discuss and debate all things around the ethical and ecologically-sound production and consumption of meat. Farmers, butchers, chefs, restaurateurs, retailers, administrators, and anyone interested in how animals are raised for meat will come together at Slow Meat Australia.

The Slow Meat Symposium will be held in Daylesford 3-5 September 2017, with farm visits, butchery and cooking demos, feasts, and of course stimulating plenaries, and debates around how to progress the slow meat and food sovereignty agenda in Australia and globally.

SBS Gourmet Farmer Matthew Evans, author of nine books on food, will present his vision for a slow meat future at the Symposium.

Paul West of River Cottage Australia will MC Monday's activities, and discussions around the ethics & ecological impact of the production, processing, and sourcing and cooking of meat will be led by local regenerative livestock farmer and butcher Tammi Jonas of Jonai Farms & Meatsmiths, butcher & purveyor of ethically-raised meats Grant Hilliard of Sydney’s acclaimed butcher’s shop Feather & Bone, and renowned chef and raconteur Matt Wilkinson of Pope Joan.

The 2017 Slow Meat Symposium is a collaboration between Slow Food Central Highlands and the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance.
