ABOUT THE SNAIL OF APPROVAL PROGRAM
The Snail of Approval is a member-driven process, with a committee made up of volunteers. Nominations can come from anyone who lives in or visits Miami.
The program is a resource to Slow Food members and the public, to inform them of which businesses are maintaining good, clean, and fair standards, to the best of their ability. Slow Food enthusiasts will look to the program as a guide when they visit Miami.
The hope is for the Snail of Approval to be a catalyst for improvement, in that some businesses may increase sustainable practices and the use of local and seasonal products, in the hope to qualify for the award.
Please note that nominations are not only limited to restaurants. Other purveyors (growers/producers) and artisans (bakers, chefs, farmers) are also considered.
