EU Protected Status for Two Meat Products

09 May 2013

UK - The European Commission has approved two new requests for registration of denominations as Protected Denominations of Origin (PDOs) and Protected Geographical Indications (PGIs) for UK meat products.

These are 'Stornoway Black Pudding' (PGI) - a black pudding made primarily from beef suet and oatmeal on the Scottish Isle of Lewis and and the 'Lakeland Herdwick' (PDO) - meat of lamb and sheep of the Herdwick breed born, raised and slaughtered in the county of Cumbria.
