IS GI-PROTECTED CHEESE A FETA COMPLI?


The Daily Telegraph reports that Shepherd’s Purse, the maker of YORKSHIRE FETA, is taking the European Commission to the ECJ over its decision to designate FETA as a protected designation of origin. In the case which was heard by the ECJ on Tuesday, Yorkshire Cheese pointed to the fact that it had been using the name since 1987. If the decision goes against it, the company will have to foot the bill for a new marketing campaign.

Who’d have thought such cuddly creatures could cause so much trouble?

The IPKat notes that cheese is a tricky product – unlike other PGIs such as NEWCASTLE BROWN ALE, the name of the place a cheese comes from often designates the variety of cheese as well. He can’t see an alternative useful shorthand way of saying FETA. Thanks to his Greek mole, he observes that FETA literally means “slice” in Greek.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
