The Preserve Journal #5
The Preserve Journal #5
The Preserve Journal is an independent print magazine dedicated to the exploration of a more sustainable, responsible, and resilient food culture.
With it we wish to invite our readers to look beyond the bite of food on their fork, and to see the whole picture of their meal and their role in it.
The Preserve Journal presents you with a broad range of perspectives from an ever-growing group of global authors and contributors- each of them with a wealth of knowledge, rich experiences and insights to share.
The content for each issue is being collected throughout the year and often follows the change of the seasons. However, while the seasons provide a visual frame for each issue we share content that remains relevant and important across the seasons and years. By doing so we hope to invite our readers to revisit past issues and find continuous inspiration.
Join us in an unfolding dialogue of what a sustainable, transparent and resilient food culture might look, feel and taste like.

"On behalf of the team, I would like to express the deepest gratitude to our lead designer Marie Døssing, who will be leaving us after this issue. Her aesthetic made up a big part of this magazine’s soul, and we know that The Preserve Journal was much-loved for its visuals made possible by her keen eye. We wish her a lot of luck and we’ll make sure to keep the magazine looking good, as she would have wanted!"
