AOP & IGP

AOP and IGP are two official quality marks, dedicated to local products which typify a region having their own unique character and inimitable taste. They guarantee the authenticity of the products that have been produced in accordance with traditional methodologies.

With the AOP, the production process is undertaken entirely in the region of origin, from production of its raw materials to final manufacture.

With the IGP, at least one step of the process must be undertaken in the region of origin.
