Project details

An increasing number of countries are adopting the Geographical Indications system (IG), which helps identify a product coming from a specific region and presenting specific qualities linked to the area of production (Gruyère cheese,  Parma ham, Sbrinz, etc.). The OriGIn Association  (Organisation for an International Geographical Indications Network) www.origin-gi.com has presently an increasing number of members, producers of food and crafts specialties from more than 30 different countries.

OriGIn has decided to hold an Extraordinary General Assembly on the 9 and 10 November 2006 in order to modify urgently its structures to accommodate a large number of new members as well as decide on a permanent structure for the years to come.
