PGI for Balsamic Vinegar of Modena!

Protected Geographical Indication

On July 4th, 2009 Balsamic Vinegar of Modena has obtained PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) labelling from European Union.

After almost fifteen years, finally, it is settled a long and harassed pattern which has always seen our Company on the front line both on the valorisation struggle and the law enforcement of this historical production of Modena.

As a founding member of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Consortium we have been very active since its goal so to assure as a common heritage, not only in Italy, a product that since centuries represents worldwide the Italian agro food tradition.

The production law enforces rules and procedures that our Company has contributed to develop and on which is certified already since 2001.
PGI label will appear on our renowned products range as soon as it will become available the Control Plan, which is actually being written by the Body of certification and the Consortium.

The complete law was published on the Official Journal of European Union L175 of 04 July 2009 and is available at the following URL: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2009:175:0007:0011:EN:PDF
