WHAT IS DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN (D.O.) PRODUCTS?
The Designation of Origin is a system that protects a cultural and gastronomic heritage.
The system guarantees the product’s origin and uniqueness. It ensures that its production follows strict specifications established through traditional and ancestral know-how.
To be acknowledged as a Designation of Origin, a dairy product must:
- Originate from a determined region or zone
- Satisfy specific production regulations
- Have an officially established reputation
- Apply for and obtain Designation of Origin recognition from INAO and thereafter, apply for a PDO recognition from the European Union.
In Spain, the Designation of Origin (D.O.) seal will guarantee this. This mark ensures that the foodstuff in question is of excellent quality, produced in a specific geographical area, with its own unique characteristics.
Designations of Origin are protected by European Union directives, and include Spanish gastronomy's most famous products.
