In our journey to discover Brazilian biodiversity we stop in Ceará, a state located on the northeastern end of this vast country.

In this area, Slow Food Brasil has implemented the “Territory and food culture in Ceará” project, which was developed with the indigenous communities of Tremembé in Barra do Mundaú and Tabajara of Quiterianópolis. The aim is to assist in the development of the territory and in the exploitation of food culture and local biodiversity.

By investing in young people to strengthen local communities on the territory, the project has given way to an exchange of experiences, from different parts of Ceará, using the mapping of food heritage as a tool to strengthen the knowledge of cultural practice.

The project was created by the Slow Food Association of Brazil (Asfb) and the Aksaam project promoted by the Ifad and Federal University of Viçosa, in collaboration with the Paulo Freire (Ifad) and São José (World Bank) projects, and the School of Social Gastronomy of Ceará.
