The specification for Exmoor blue cheese, a protected food name product.
This document provides detail on a protected food name product from the UK, Exmoor Blue cheese, 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 is undergoing national consultation and review.
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.
