New European framework for quality schemes in agriculture

The Council of the European Union adopted on Tuesday 13 November a regulation on quality schemes for agricultural products and foodstuffs which should achieve a simplified regime under one single legal instrument, and a more robust framework for the protection and promotion of quality agricultural products.
The main elements of the regulation include the reinforcement of the existing scheme for protected designations of origin and geographical indications (PDOs and PGIs); overhauling the traditional specialties guaranteed scheme (TSGs), and laying down a new framework for the development of optional quality terms to provide consumers with further information.
