SLOVENIA - The European Commission has approved the addition of a new Slovenian product to the register of Protected Geographical Indications (PGIs).
Kranjska klobasa is a semi-durable sausage made from minced pork meat and back fat, spiced with sea salt, garlic and pepper and mildly hot-smoked in beech wood.
It is presented by pairs of sausages skewered with a wooden dowel and it is preferably warmed up in hot water before consumption.
The denomination will be added to the list of more than 1,200 products already protected. More information: webpages on quality products and DOOR database of protected products.
