The Ark of Taste “travels the world collecting small-scale quality products that belong to the cultures, history and traditions of the entire planet: an extraordinary heritage of fruits, vegetables, animal breeds, cheeses, breads, sweets and cured meats.” The Ark was created to help save culturally rich foods exceptional in taste, history and more that were in danger of becoming extinct as a result of the industrialization of food.
