The Ark of Taste is open for submissions!
You don’t have to be a farmer, fisher or even a Slow Food member to nominate a product to our living catalogue of the world’s most delicious and distinctive foods facing extinction – being interested is all that counts.

All you have to do is fill out this simple form, and Slow Food will evaluate your submission.

Biodiversity and small-scale traditional methods of producing food are under threat across the globe, and it will take a co-ordinated effort to protect them. That’s why we’re inviting you to submit typical local foods (be they plants, animal breeds, or processed products) to the Ark of Taste, to help raise awareness and ensure their continued vitality through future generations.

After all, nobody can do everything, but everybody can do something!
