European PDO and PGI labels were born to protect Europe’s top agri-foods, the crème della crème of a production that has no equal in the world and can boast absolute excellence in terms of nutritional quality.
The PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) quality brands established by the European Union protect agricultural or food products whose characteristics depend essentially or exclusively on a given geographical location, something which is a sum of all natural and human factors, including production and processing techniques, all of which make the product unique and inimitable.
These are all top quality products, the result of the application of strict production rules established by specific regulations and compliance is constantly monitored by independent bodies who control standard certification. Each single aspect of production is traceable and ingredients are closely monitored to prevent fraud and guarantee the final product quality.
