EU’s Geographical Indications System and its Benefits for Australia’s Premium Producers, Retailers and Consumers
Why the origin of food matters? This session will explain how the quality of regional and traditional food and beverage products is recognised in the EU’s Geographical Indications (GI). This EU’s Geographical Indications system aims at protecting the names of specific products to promote their unique characteristics, linked to their geographical origin as well as traditional know-how of the place where they are made. The EU GI recognition enables consumers to trust and distinguish quality products, while also helping producers to market their products better.
