I have noticed this topic was not previously discussed on this amazing forum: what's your take on origin-protected foodstuffs (I mean the PDO [Protected Designation of Origin]-certified ones) in light of the upcoming free trade agreement between Europe and the US (#TTIP)?
To better comprehend what's happening in the US, where it has been instituted an ad-hoc non-profit organization called "Consortium for Common Food Names", I have even dedicated an article on my site:
Fresh agreements between the Italian Consortium of Parmigiano Reggiano and North American retailers—Two proposed actions to gear down the business of unfair Italian sounding food products and promote honest trade practices
I see this issue closer to products from the EU, especially for Italy having the largest number of PDO products.
