  Protected designation of origin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Protected designation of origin (PDO), protected geographical indication (PGI) and Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG) are geographical indications defined in European Union Law to protect regional foods.
While the United States usually opposes protection of geographical designations of origin (since many of these which are protected elsewhere are commonly-used generic terms in the United States, such as parmesan cheese), there are some groups who would like to see some degree of protection for their regional designation.
Ideally, protected designation of origin is both a consumer protection measure and a way of protecting producers of a region's traditional and/or characteristic foods.

 Cheddar cheese - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cheddar cheese is a pale yellow, sharp-tasting cheese originally made in the English village of Cheddar, in Somerset.
To meet this standard the cheese must be made in the traditional manner using local ingredients in four designated counties of south-west England.
The origins of this practice are clouded, but the three leading theories appear to be to allow the cheese to have a consistent colour from batch to batch, to assist the purchaser in identifying the type of cheese when it is unlabelled, or to identify the cheese's region of origin.

It is apparent from the observations of the Italian Government that Italy laid down the rules governing the use of designations of origin for cheese produced in Italy by enacting Law No 125 of 10 April 1954 (6) and Decree of the President of the Republic No 1269 of 30 October 1955.
As already mentioned, entry of the PDO Grana Padano in the Register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications kept by the Commission was effected under Regulation No 1107/96, that is to say by means of the simplified procedure pursuant to Article 17 of Regulation No 2081/92.
However, the decree of 4 November 1991 was intended to extend to grated cheese the protection conferred by the designation of origin.

 The Question of Origin-Controlled Chiles
Many countries belonging to the European Union protect certain products with what is called "Protected Designation of Origin." For example, the term "Champagne" is restricted to a sparkling wine from that region of France only, and "Roquefort" cheese is limited to the cheese that is produced by certain methods only in that village.
The four requirements of such a designation are terroir, the region and soil contributing to the product; matiere premiere, the raw materials from which it’s made; savoir-faire, the techniques of making the product; and tradition, or the knowledge of its manufacture built up over generations.

Geographical indications and designations of origin of agricultural products and foodstuffs are protected by Community law.
The Commission, supported in that respect by the Scientific Committee for Designations of Origin, concluded from the survey that the name "Feta" had not become the common name of a product and that it continued to evoke a Greek origin.
The Court found that the Commission, unjustly, had minimised the importance to be attached to the situation existing in the Member States other than the State of origin and had considered their national legislation to be entirely irrelevant.
