Give him a time limit. Start off with maybe an hour and slowly reduce it. Once the time is up take away his plate, he will soon learn that if he doesn't eat at the same pace as the rest of the family he will go hungry.

We had one kid like that - we started setting a timer, shortening the time each day. He was able to see the timer, and see the time winding down. Once the buzzer went off, the meal was taken. It worked. I only had to send him off hungry a few times.
He is now a teenager, and it barely touches the sides of his throat now, LOL. Believe me, the slow eating is also just a phase :D
