Protected Geographical Indication (PGI)
Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) is awarded by the European Commission.
It is an initiative which protects and promotes the designation of a quality food or farmed product.
The PGI is linked to the name of a region, a specific location or, in exceptional cases, that of a country.
Scottish salmon is the holder of Protected Geographical Indication “Scottish Farmed Salmon”.
To hold PGI, Scottish salmon farmers much comply with the criteria laid down in a specification approved by the European Commission.
Food Certification International Ltd. acts as certifying body for the “Scottish Farmed Salmon” PGI standard.
