QUALITY IS NOT AN ACT, IT'S A HABIT.

PDO AND PGI SEALS: AN EU GUARANTEE FOR ITALIAN QUALITY

Throughout the world, Italian food enjoys a reputation of high quality thanks to its centuries-old traditions and dedication to quality and excellence. This heritage is certified by the European Union through a series of geographical indications that include PDO (Protected designation of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographic Origin).

 

PDO and PGI are aimed at encouraging a diverse agricultural production, protecting product names from misuse and imitation and aiding consumers by giving them the information they need concerning the specific character of products in the marketplace. PDO (in Italian DOP) is awarded to products of excellence that express a close tie to its territory of origin. The PDO recognizes agricultural products and foodstuffs which are produced, processed and prepared in a given geographical area recognizing production methods. PGI (in Italian IGP) is awarded to agricultural products and foodstuffs closely linked to the geographical area. At least one of the stages of production, processing or preparation takes place in the area.
