Posted in: Europe wants its Parmesan back; seeks name change See in context

Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan in English), Gorgonzola, Asiago, Camembert and other European products are protected indications and they are treated as intellectual property rights by the Customs Regulation 1383/2003. This Regulation ensures that only products genuinely originating in that region are allowed to be identified as such in commerce. The purpose of the law is to protect the reputation of the regional foods, promote rural and agricultural activity, help producers obtain a premium price for their authentic products, and eliminate the unfair competition and misleading of consumers by non-genuine products, which may be of inferior quality or of different flavour.
