Nomination & Approval Process

  • Slow Food members can nominate any business in Sacramento County that contributes to the quality, authenticity, and/or sustainability of our food supply.
  • Businesses that are Slow Food members can nominate themselves. Recipients are not required to be Slow Food members to be nominated for or awarded the Snail of Approval.
  • Nomination forms will be submitted to the Slow Food Sacramento Snail of Approval Committee. The Committee will then vet the recipients (including an onsite visit if necessary) and forward its recommendations to the Slow Food officers. Recipients will receive Snail of Approval decal(s) to be displayed, and will be listed, along with a description of their products and services, on the Snail of Approval page of the Slow Food Sacramento website.
  • The Snail of Approval designation is good for two years; renewal is by the same process.
