PDO and other designations


Several Greek wines, cheeses and other foods are specially protected by EU regulations, perhaps most famously Feta.

ΠΟΠ (προστατευόμενη ονομασία προέλευσης) Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

ΠΓΕ (Προστασία γεωγραφικής ένδειξης) Protected Geographical Indication (PGI)

ΕΠΙΠ (Εγγυημένα Παραδοσιακά Ιδιότυπα Προϊόντα) Traditional Specialities Guaranteed (TSG)

Some 22 products are in the Slow Food Presidium's Ark of Taste.
