Details

The Scottish Government is currently consulting on an application to register “Scottish Wild Venison” as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).

The consultation paper can be found on the Scottish Government website. The consultation ends on 29 May 2018.

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.
