First Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) for salt in Europe.
Since 10/04/12, the PGI protects the names “Sel de Guérande” and “Fleur de Sel de Guérande”, as well as the promotion of the products and the associated know-how. This sign of origin crowns many years of work by the entire profession.
(The PGI is in application 20 days after its publication date of 20/03/12 in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. 20/03/12 + 20 days = since 10/04/12!)
Thanks to this PGI, salt workers can guarantee the origin and quality of “Sel de Guérande” and “Fleur de Sel de Guérande” products to their customers and consumers.
