The European Commission has added four names of agricultural products and foodstuffs to the Register of Protected Designations of Origin (PDO) and Protected Geographical Indications (PGI):

  • "Hofer Rindfleischwurst" (Sausage - PGI - Germany)
  • "Carciofo Spinoso di Sardegna" (Artichoke - PDO - Italy)
  • "Arancia di Ribera" (Orange - PDO - Italy)
