Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our proposals for bringing the EU’s geographical indication schemes into UK law after EU exit. These cover the protected food name schemes, wine, and spirit schemes.

Key changes include:

  • creation and use of new logos
  • revising the appeals process

The consultation also addresses some wider wine and spirit sector standards.

A geographical indication (GI) is used to show that a product has a specific geographical source and possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that location.
