The Ark of Taste is a listing of endangered food species, stretching across the globe. It highlights unique food items that are neglected today due to the industrialization of our food production and the marginalization of small-scale food producers. The Ark of Taste is part of the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity. Through the Ark of Taste, NESFAS aims at the rediscovery, cataloging, description, and promotion of foods that have been forgotten with time. In 2012, three Ark of Taste products entered the Ark of Taste as ‘passengers’.
