Czechs keep cheese GI, to disappointment of Slovakia
Commission Regulation 24/2010 of 13 January 2010 entering a name in the register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications [Jihočeská Niva (PGI)] was published yesterday on the website of the Official Journal of the European Union. The appellation Jihočeská Niva applies to a blue cheese which has been in dispute between the Czech Republic (which the Commission has ruled to be the rightful custodian of the name) and neighbouring Slovakia.
