Small Business Supporters Spotlight

Small Business Supporters

Businesses choosing alternative paths for commerce that respect and invest in the wellbeing of our shared communities and resources are changing the future of food and farming. Slow Food USA recognizes these allies of the Slow Food movement and their commitment to good, clean and fair values.

Please note that the Small Business Supporters program was created to engage companies in our mission and does not equate Slow Food USA’s endorsement of any company or product. Slow Food USA operates across the United States and we encourage local businesses to also stay involved with their local Slow Food chapters.
