14 October 2009, Cologne, Germany: Seized imitations of Parmigiano- Reggiano

Following a request from the “Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano”, the Court of Cologne ordered the seizure of cheese products from Argentina commercialized under the labels “Parmesano” and “Reggianito”.
Those products were exposed at one of the world’s most important Food & Beverages Fair – “Anuga” in Cologne (Germany). The German Court recognized that the use of the denominations “Parmesano” or “Reggianito” for cheese was an evocation of the PDO Parmigiano-Reggiano, according to Article 13 of EC Council Regulation 510/06.

This decision is important for all GI producers (protection of their rights) as well as for consumers (authenticity of PDO/PGI products)!
