Quality agricultural products: Chinese vinegar receives protected status in the EU

The term in Chinese which means 'Zhenjiang Xiang Cu' has been formally registered as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) for a Chinese vinegar.

It has been added to the more than 1000 names of agricultural products and foodstuffs (among them 9 non-EU products) protected as PGI or PDO (Protected Designation of Origin).

It is the seventh Chinese name of a product receiving the protected status, after the garlic Jinxiang Da Suan (PGI), the green tea Longjing cha (PDO), the fruit Guanxi Mi You (PDO), the apple Shaanxi ping guo (PDO), the yam Lixian Ma Shan Yao (PGI) and the pastas Longkou Fen Sia garlic (PGI).
