EU: EU adds more products to protected list
Another eight traditionally made European food products have been added to the EU protected geographical indication lists.
The list prevents foodstuffs being copied by food manufacturers based outside the regions where they are traditionally manufactured.
Three of these newly protected products are from Portugal: a special rice - 'Arroz Carolino das Lezírias Ribatejanas'; a smoked sausage 'Alheira de Vinhais'; and a ham 'Presunto de Vinhais', also known as 'Presunto Bísaro de Vinhais'.
Two are from Spain: a cheese 'Gamoneu' (or 'Gamonedo') and a specialist garlic 'Ajo Morado de Las Pedroñeras'.
A French Alpine garlic'Ail de la Drôme' has been added, along with a Czech onion variety 'Všestarská cibule', and a Slovakian cheese: 'Slovenská bryndza'.
These products join a growing cadre of such protected products, now numbering more than 800.
