Genève, ville du Goût 2021

City of taste

Geneva has the honour of being named Swiss City of Taste 2021 by the Foundation responsible for organising the Semaine suisse du Goût

The City of Geneva has a rich tradition with the Semaine du Goût, as it has played an active role in the event for many years as part of its programme supporting sustainable food and local agriculture, entitled Nourrir la Ville, or feed the city. This action not only acknowledges those restaurants committed to healthy eating, but also helps promote dietary diversity as well as high-quality regional craft products within the catering sector and among the population as a whole.

More broadly speaking, the City of Geneva works in close collaboration with the canton and the associations to bring the city and the countryside closer together while promoting sustainable food and urban agriculture.

This choice is reward for its long-standing commitment, and Geneva will be proud to be the flag bearer of taste throughout 2021.

A steering has already been working hard for several months to develop an ambitious programme focussing on such crucial issues as educating people’s palates, ensuring the broadest possible access to high-quality, healthy food and exploring the link between food and climate. The issues of promoting local products, attachment to the territory and the local economy will also represent a common thread of key elements throughout the year.
