Our Certification

Certificazione Descrizione
ceritifcazione qualita

Protected Designation of Origin, better known under its acronym PDO, is a mark that legally protects designation granted by the European Union to foods whose special quality features depend essentially or exclusively on where they are produced. The geographical circumstances are taken to include both natural factors (climate, environmental characteristics), and human factors (production techniques handed down over time, craftsmanship, savoir-faire) which, taken together, ensure a product that is inimitable outside a particular production area. For a product to become PDO, its production, processing and preparation must take place within a restricted geographical area. Those who make PDO products must respect rigid production regulations laid down in the production specifications. Respect for these regulations is guaranteed by a specific Inspection Body. In order to distinguish PDO from PGI products, also at a glance, the colours of the respective marks have been changed from yellow-blue to yellow-red
