Three quality logos attest to the specific traditions and qualities of food, agricultural products and wines, aromatised wines and spirit drinks, produced in the European Union or in other countries. Two of these logos - the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) - have a specific link to the region where the product comes from, while the third one - the Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG) - logo highlights a traditional production process. Food products are eligible for all three logos: PDO, PGI and TSG. Wine is eligible for PDO and PGI while spirit drinks and aromatised wines qualified for PGI recognition.
Through the logos, consumers can easily recognise these traditional quality products and can rely on their authenticity in terms of regional origin or traditional production. Indeed, as well as providing a useful marketing tool in the European Union (EU) and on other markets, registration under these schemes provides producers with legal protection against imitation or misuse of the product name.
