Green Bronte Pistachios PDO
Did you know that? European Union quality policy aims at protecting the names of specific products to promote their unique characteristics, linked to their geographical origin as well as traditional know-how. Product names can be granted with a 'geographical indication' (GI) if they have a specific link to the place where they are made. The GI recognition enables consumers to trust and distinguish quality products while also helping producers to market their products better.
Product names registered as PDO are those that have the strongest links to the place in which they are made.
Every part of the production, processing and preparation process must take place in the specific region.
