Snail of Approval

The Snail of Approval is an international recognition program for farmers, food producers, artisans, retail outlets, restaurants and cafes, chefs, and cooks that demonstrate a philosophy of adopting earth-friendly practices. These might include a reduction in the use of chemicals, use of local and low food mile ingredients, preserving vanishing animal breeds and plant varieties, animal-friendly practices, support of small producers, striving to create food that is Good, Clean, and Fair.

Importantly the Snail of Approval award recognises effort and intent, and should not be seen as an accreditation for any of these areas.

The Snail of Approval program recognises that adoption of these practices fall on a continuum and is not a recognition of perfection. It is envisaged that once in the Snail of Approval program, businesses will find opportunities for improvement towards Good, Clean, and Fair food for all.
