Protected Designation Of Origin

The DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) mark is a designation registered with the European Community to indicate a typical Italian product of high quality, whose area of origin and the traditions still used to create it make it so peculiar that it must be protected from counterfeits. .
Among all the denominations and indications present in Italy, the DOP is probably the best known and certainly the most restrictive; Its very limited regulation guarantees the consumer a high quality product, both as regards the origin and provenance of raw materials, as well as for its production and food safety.
