Protecting Turkey’s Bursa black figs and Bursa peaches

Turkey is moving closer to having its Bursa black figs and Bursa peaches protected and promoted through geographical indications (GIs) – a move that could raise producers’ incomes and open up market opportunities.  

As seen in this new video, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have been supporting Bursa’s producers in officially registering the two fruits as GIs.  

A GI is a public label that recognizes the link between a high-quality product and its place of origin, protecting that recognition as an intellectual property right. And according to a recent FAO-EBRD study, GI registration brings numerous benefits to producers and rural areas in general.
