Place to Bee is not only a beloved Italian- and Indian fusion restaurant in Ooty but a social enterprise that builds capacity of local and community people. In 2007 India’s first Bee museum was established to educate the public about their crucial role as pollinators. Eight years later the restaurant was launched in addition to the Green Shop in the building. We promote the values of Slow Food Principles and connect the Bee Museum activities through our wider Keystone work with consumers, producers, culture, ecological realities and challenges. What are the Slow Food Principles? Slow Food is a concept that was founded in Italy in 1986, and it gives importance to locally produced goods, clean and fair food. It safeguards agricultural biodiversity which is at risk of extinction and gives visibility and the proper value to the supplying producers.
