The European Commission added the names of the two Dutch cheeses "Edam Holland" and "Gouda Holland" to the list of Protected Geographical Indications.

It has to be made clear that the protection concerns the denominations "Gouda Holland" and "Edam Holland" and not "Gouda" and "Edam" as these terms are considered to be generic and can be continued to be used elsewhere.

The two names are added to the list of around 1000 product names already protected under the legislation on the protection of geographical indications and designations of origin and traditional speciality.
