PDO: Agrifood products that owe their characteristics to the geographical environment from which they come.
Products with the Protected Designation of Origin Certificate (PDO), they are agricultural products or foodstuffs that come from a particular geographical area or place, whose properties are significantly or exclusively determined by the geographical environment, including natural and human factors, and whose production, processing and preparation take place within the geographical area or place that gives the designation its name, including traditional designations of foodstuffs, whether or not such designations are of a geographical nature.
They are healthy, good-quality products, but when we choose a Catalan ‘PDO’, we are not just looking after our health and palate; we are also promoting local trade and the region’s economy in general.
They are healthy, good-quality products, but when we choose a Catalan ‘PDO’, we are not just looking after our health and palate; we are also promoting local trade and the region’s economy in general. There are 11 Protected Designations of Origin (Denominació d’Origen Protegida, in Catalan and Spanish) in Catalonia, five for extra virgin olive oil (Siurana, Les Garrigues, Oli del Baix Ebre-Montsià, Oli de Terra Alta and Oli de l’Empordà). But there are also other products such as Reus hazelnuts, Ganxet beans, Ebro Delta rice, Lleida pears, and L’Alt Urgell and La Cerdanya cheese and butter. The last two are made by CADÍ.
