What does PGI or PDO mean, after some of the product names?

Some of our products have an abbreviation after their title, or a sticker on the pack – but what does that mean? Basically it assures you that the products are authentic because of where or how they are produced.  The two most common are:

PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) for products which are produced, processed and prepared in a given geographical area using recognised methods or skills. One example of this is the Piacenza Two Cured Meats Platter.

PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) for products which are linked to a geographical area where at least one of the production, processing or preparation steps has taken place. For example Speck Aldo Adige P.G.I, or Bresaola Della Valtelina P.G.I.
