Slow Food Saddleback has had an annual program of Snail of Approval Awards begun in 2019. The awards recognise local businesses, producers, restaurants and providers who follow the Slow Food principles of good, clean and fair food.
The awards also recognise a concentration on recycling, sustainability and regeneration. Applicants are required to demonstrate all or most of these criteria.
In December, the following 12 businesses were presented a Snail of Approval for 2023 to display at their place of business to show locals and visitors alike that they are worthy of support:
- The Pines, Kiama
- Loquacious Kombucha
- The Blue Swimmer at Seahaven, Gerroa

Congratulations to our Snail of Approval recipients. These local businesses reflect the principles of Slow Food in the food and products they create and deliver to the community and we encourage all our members and readers to support them.
