Edward Mukiibi is the president of Slow Food International. He is an agronomist, an educator in food and agriculture, social entrepreneur and executive director of Slow Food Uganda. He also played a pivotal role in the development of the Slow Food Gardens in Africa project and in the overall growth of the Slow Food African network. He informally started his work during his second year at university by vying for leadership positions in his faculty, which he used as a platform to advocate for, and promote, agriculture as a viable career path. Edward went on to establish the DISC Project, as a vehicle through which he could continue this work on a larger scale. He has served on the executive committee of Slow Food since 2012, became Slow Food vice president in 2014 and president in 2022.
