WELCOME TO THE GHANA FOOD MOVEMENT
"Ghana Food Movement is a divers and empowering network fighting for a Ghanaian food system that is future proof!”
GHANA FOOD MOVEMENT
Over the last couple of months a diverse group of food professionals came together to form the Ghana food Movement. This grassroots movement aims to bring people & Initiatives together who are interested in our global food system and have a passion for Ghanaian food - and making this future proof.
This diverse network of farmers, scientists, chefs, journalist, policy makers, entrepreneurs, producers etc. believes in order to face the challenges that lie ahead, we need to come together to find answers on how we can shape the future of our food system and change it for the better.
Through an online platform and offline events Ghana Food Movement brings together a strong network of movers and shakers, supports initiatives striving for a better system, celebrates Ghanaian culinary heritage and creates awareness around food in Ghana.
"The Ghana Food Movement is an amplifier. We highlight, empower and connect what is already happening in Ghana. By connecting with each other and working together we can make a change in Ghana faster and bigger!"

We invited chefs from leading hotels and catering companies in Ghana to gather for a tasting and meeting about the future of Ghanaian indigenous ingredients. The lunch is prepared by Chef Selassie Atadika showcasing some of the amazing indigenous ingredients that are often forgotten, ignored or even threatened with extinction. During the tasting we will discuss using and promoting these ingredients that make Ghana unique. Followed by a presentation of special guest Slowfood Ghana & their Ark of Taste project. We end the event by challenging all chefs to start creating a dish/dishes with the supplied indigenous ingredients in a special curated [Food Gems] box within the next 3 months.
