Two agricultural product names registered (the first Lithuanian, and also the first transnational PDO)
The European Commission has added two names of agricultural products and foodstuffs to the Register of Protected Designations of Origin (PDO) and Protected Geographical Indications (PGI):
- "Miód z Sejneńszczyny/Łoździejszczyzny"/"Seinų/Lazdijų krašto medus" (honey - PDO - Poland and Lithuania)
This is not only the first Lithuanian protected designation of origin, but also first transnational PDO.
- "Holsteiner Katenschinken / Holsteiner Schinken / Holsteiner Katenrauchschinken / Holsteiner Knochenschinken " (meat - PGI - Germany)
The two names are added to the list of more than 1000 product names already protected under the legislation on the protection of geographical indications and designations of origin and traditional speciality.
