SFYN at Edinburgh Food Festival

SFYN Scotland at Edinburgh Food FestivalSFYN Scotland will be participating in this year’s Edinburgh Food Festival which is on between the 27th and 31st July. Offering revellers a wide variety of Scotland’s finest produce to enjoy, food producers from around the country will fill the gardens, from Plan Bee Ltd to Breadshare; Fresh Revolution to Alplings, there’s something for everyone. With the iconic Spiegeltent Palais Du Variete as its centrepiece, a variety of headline shows will take place over the five days providing great interactive entertainment.

Members from SFYN Scotland will be helping out on  Slow Food Edinburgh‘s daily ‘themed’ food stall which will be showcasing good, clean and fair food from across Scotland with a series of demonstrations and tastings. We’ll be putting your #whatthefood questions to the chefs, producers and experts who visit the stall (more details to follow soon!)

Visit Slow Food Edinburgh’s website for their full breakdown of the Food Festival Programme.

SFYN Events coming soon...

Save the date!
We're planning another 'Eat In' on the evening of Thursday 18th August, this time we'll head to Leith away from the hustle and bustle of the Fringe. Once again this will take the form of a themed pot luck supper. More details to follow soon...

Why are sweet things so delicious?
We're also busy planning our next #whatthefood event which will take place in Edinburgh in September and will focus on sugar. Sugar has been branded as the new biggest evil by nutritionists. But is it really our fault if we love it? Guided by Dr Lois White, we'll learn about biology, history, tasting preferences, nutrition and the new sugar tax. Interesting tastes will be provided!

SFYN Instagram Takeover!

Follow our Instagram feed to see what our members are up as they take over our Instagram account over the summer. Thanks to Sammi and Gillian who have been providing a peek into their daily lives and showing what good, clean, fair food for all means to them.

We’d love to profile a wide range of people from Scotland who are passionate about supporting a better food system, be it producer, chef, educator, farmer or passionate consumer. 

Are you in Scotland, under 40 and want to do a takeover on our Instagram feed for a week? Please do get in touch at or via social media!

What is the Slow Food Youth Network?

The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) is an international network of young people who bring about changes in the field of food production and consumption. It was founded by a number of enthusiastic and motivated young people with a passion for good, clean and fair food, and with an interest in sustainability issues.

We are the world's future leaders, entrepreneurs, farmers and consumers. The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) was founded to make youth familiar with Slow Food's philosophy that says that all food should be Good, Clean and Fair. This means that food should be prepared with care and respect, grown as sustainable as possible and that the farmers and producers should get a fair wage.

SFYN raises awareness among young citizens and consumers to encourage and mobilize them in making responsible choices. It wants them to take part in the public debate about current issues, such as how to feed the world, what to do about food waste, and how to produce food as sustainable as possible.
