Promoting the Ark of Taste

Posted on:

Regular readers of Edible Columbus will have noticed by now that their cover story for the fall issue is about Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste.

Of course, we couldn’t be more thrilled!

We realized, however, that there might be vendors who sell Ark of Taste products who don’t have any way of signaling that fact to consumers who will have read Edible and will be looking for Ark products. We’ve already created one logo, to fit in with the signage at the Greener Grocer; Slow Food USA has created another.

If you’re selling Ark of Taste products (or think you might be), first, check the Ark of Taste list of over 200 products to determine whether any of yours are listed. If they are, feel free to incorporate one of the logos below into your signage to let consumers know that they’re buying a heritage food—one that Slow Food USA is trying to save by spreading the word about its quality and sustainability.

    We at City Folk’s Farm Shop will be working with Seed Savers Exchange to bring in many of the pulses and vegetable seed packets listed on Ark of Taste for the 2013 growing season. How else might we help you get the word out about the Ark of Taste?
