Get recognised

To be eligible for our scheme:

  • At least 25% of your sales must come from products deemed "Slow", with regard to Quality, Authenticity and Sustainability

Quality is fundamental—food must taste good and be good for us. Quality includes: the freshness and wholesomeness of ingredients; the care and craft with which they are handled; the quality of life of consumers, producers and their neighbours. It is a standard of Quality based on food that is good, clean and fair.

Authenticity means that the food is true to its source. Natural products free of additives are true to themselves; local, seasonal foods are true to their time and place; heirloom varietals and heritage breeds are true to their evolutionary history; traditional foods are true to their cultural heritage. Authentic foods come from and contribute to ecological and cultural systems that are good, clean and fair.

Sustainability means that we must pay attention to the consequences of how we produce and distribute food. We must be good stewards of the environment in which we live; we must protect the biodiversity on which we depend; we must be humane to the animals we raise, fair to the people we employ, and we must insist that high quality food be available to all. Sustainability means reducing all the negative consequences of making food – it means using processes that are good, clean and fair.

e.g.s  - As a minimum you should be using, growing or selling heritage varieties, grown or raised in their traditional habitats using traditional techniques - selling goods made to traditional production methods
