Patuanelli vows to defend Balsamic vinegar of Modena

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 25 – Agriculture Minister Stefano
Patuanelli said Thursday that the government will take action to
defend Balsamic vinegar of Modena from attempts by the Slovenia
authorities to get around the system that protects its
authenticity.
    The consortium of producers of Balsamic vinegar of Modena has
sounded that alarm after the Slovenian government notified the
European Commission of a national law which aims to transform
the denomination “balsamic vinegar” into a product standard.
    This consortium says this conflicts with EU law and undermines
the PDO and PGI labelling system protecting the authenticity of
foods produced in a specific geographical area.
    “The protection of Italian wine and gastronomy is one of the
government’s priorities,” said Patuanelli.
    “So, we will do everything possible to defend Balsamic vinegar
of Modena from these illicit attacks”. . (ANSA).
