From shepherds' huts to chestnuts: more GIs protected

What with all the excitements of the end of the year, Class 46 fell a little bit behind in bringing you news of fresh geographical indication and similar protection which has been the subject of legislation in the form of Regulations. Some of these are listed below.

Commission Regulation 984/2010 of 3 November 2010 entering a name in the register of traditional specialities guaranteed [Ovčí hrudkový syr – salašnícky (TSG)].  This is a cheese made in shepherds' huts. It comes from Slovakia and is made with raw sheep's milk.

* Commission Regulation 985/2010 of 3 November 2010 entering a name in the register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications [Bruna bönor från Öland (PGI)]. Bruna bönor från Öland is a brown Swedish bean with a delicate and slightly sweet-sour smell.

* Commission Regulation 986/2010 of 3 November 2010 entering a name in the register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications (Szegedi fűszerpaprika-őrlemény/Szegedi paprika (PDO)). From Hungary, this is a ground paprika, "grown from state-recognised sowing seeds".

* Commission Regulation 987/2010 of 3 November 2010 entering a name in the register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications [Marrone della Valle di Susa (PGI)]. The Marrone della Valle di Susa is an Italian chestnut with a remarkably graphic and complex description. Once met, never forgotten?
