Croatian sausage producers exploring the benefits of the Geographical Indication Status, Italy, September 2011

Croatian sausage producers exploring the benefits of the Geographical Indication Status

Producers of the typical kulen sausage – from Croatia’s Baranya region - visited Italy to see how sausage producers can use geographical indications to boost sales. The tour took place in Parma from 19 to 22 September 2011 and was sponsored by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It was also supported by Agrokor, a Croatian company involved in the production of kulen. Representatives from the Croatian kulen industry met with a whole range of entities involved in sausage geographical indications in Italy, including regional authorities, the University of Parma, sausage producers and producers’ associations (consorzi). The cases of three famous GI products of the Parma region were analyzed: the Salame di Felino PGI (Protected Geographical Indication), the Salami Piacentini PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and the Culatello di Zibello PDO. During the tour, the Italian hosts explained the respective roles of local institutions and producers’ associations in the registration procedures of GIs.
