Protected Geographical Indication

Fruits and vegetables with Protected Geographical Indication (IGP)

The Protected Geographical Indication (IGP) is a quality regime that the European Union grants to protect agricultural and food products that have a differentiated quality.

Products bearing the IGP seal must have a reputation, a quality or a characteristic that originates from a certain geographical area, in which at least one of the production, transformation or elaboration phases is carried out.

Like the PDO Protected Designations of Origin, they usually use traditional production methods that respect the environment and carry out sustainable agriculture.

Regulation (CE) 1151/2012 on the Protected Geographical Indication

According to Regulation (EC) 1151/2012, names that describe a specific product that:

  • Be originally from a certain place, a region or a country.
  • Possessing a certain quality, reputation or other characteristic that can essentially be attributed to its geographical origin.
  • Of whose production phases, at least one takes place in the defined geographical area.

With this mention, Protected Geographical Indication (IGP), the name that identifies a product originating from a specific place is protected.

This distinction in the product facilitates the consumer’s choice. When choosing it, he knows that he is dealing with an authentic, regional product of the highest quality, all of which is guaranteed by the Regulatory Council.
