DescriptionThis dataset contains the British foods that are protected under EU law. The EU Protected Food Name scheme highlights regional and traditional foods whose authenticity and origin can be guaranteed. The product is awarded one of three marks: Protected Designation of Origin (PDO); Protected Geographical Indication (PGI); and Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG). Under this system a named food or drink registered at a European level will be given legal protection against imitation throughout the EU. Producers who register their products for protection benefit from having a raised awareness of their product throughout Europe. This may in turn help them take advantage of consumers’ increasing awareness of the importance of regional and speciality foods. data is provided as a KML(WGS84) and SHP(OSGB36). the data was found on this site: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=214801935067985382336.0004ef734d0081481e7be&msa=0&ll=52.173932,-1.340332&spn=5.661049,9.876709 and seems to have been sourced from here: https://www.gov.uk/protected-food-names-guidance-for-producers A licence is not visible, but as the source is a .gov.uk website it is added to sharegeo under a OGL license.
