Detail on a food product from the UK, Dundee cake, which is being considered under the EU protected food names scheme.
We are in the process of applying to the EU to get Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status for this product.
The EU protected food name scheme covers regional and traditional foods whose authenticity and origin can be guaranteed.
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.
