The specification for Cornish pasty, a protected food name product.
This document provides detail on a protected food name product from the UK, Cornish pasty, which has been given Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status.
The EU protected food name scheme covers regional and traditional foods whose authenticity and origin can be guaranteed.
An updated specification for this product was submitted to the European Commission for scrutiny on 11 August 2014 and has been approved.
The EU will only give a product the PGI mark if they decide it has a reputation, characteristics or qualities that are a result of the area it’s associated with.
