Making informed purchasing choices requires clear information. But labels on the foods we buy are insufficient, leaving many open questions about whether products are actually sustainable.

Certification systems inform consumers and reassure them that virtuous production specifications are followed. Together with organic agriculture, which is the only certification regulated by the European Union, there are private certification systems for biodynamic, regenerative and symbiotic agriculture. 

Slow Food has, for its part, developed the narrative label: a self-certification that allows the producer to clarify all aspects of the production process. And it is working with Presidia, Earth Markets and the Slow Food Coffee Coalition on Participatory Guarantee (PGS), whereby the local community is involved in a direct relationship with producers, collectively overseeing compliance with shared production standards.


  • Marco Paravicini Crespi, FederBio Vice President with responsibility for biodynamics.
  • Clayton Apikan, program director of Traditional Native American Farmers Association.
  • Flávia Moura e Castro, IFOAM, Senior Organic Policy and Guarantee Coordinator.
  • Dario Fornara, research director of EROC (European Regenerative Organic Center), born in Parma from the collaboration between Davines Group and the Rodale Institute in the USA.


  • Marco Castelnuovo, Corriere Della Sera.
