Protected Finnish food products

The European Union has implemented three schemes to protect names of agricultural products and foodstuffs: PDO (protected designation of origin), PGI (protected geographical indication), and TSG (traditional speciality guaranteed).

These EU schemes are aimed at encouraging diversity in agricultural production, protecting product names from misuse and imitation, and offering information to consumers about the specific character of the products.

With consumers increasingly interested in where and how food products have been produced, the protected product name system provides information on product origins and increases awareness of the products.

We offer information on protected Finnish food products and food companies.
