A Taste of Greece

Greece enjoys a huge variety of agricultural products. Olives and olive oil, cheeses, wines, mastic and saffron are but a few of the products that have won international acclaim as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and received important distinctions for their quality and particularly delectable characteristics. These are a result not only of the richness of Greek soil, but also the passion and traditional knowledge handed down through the generations to their producers.
Greece ranks among the first in the EU, regarding the list of agricultural products registered as protected designation of origin (PDO), protected geographical indication (PGI) or Traditional Specialty Guaranteed (TSG) products, with approximately 94 entries. These products are olive oils, table olives, cheese, honey, fruits, vegetables, cereals, bread, pastry, fish and related products, other products of animal origin, gums and natural resins, essential oils and other products.

Cook Greek!

This EU system ensures that only products genuinely originating in a specific region are allowed in commerce identified as such.  The purpose of this system is to protect the reputation of regional foods, promote rural and agricultural activity, help producers obtain a premium price for their authentic products, and eliminate unfair competition, as well as practices misleading consumers with non-genuine products, of possible inferior quality or different flavour.
