Geographical Indication

A geographical indication (GI) is a indication used on commodities that possesses a distinct geographical origin and includes qualities or a reputation that are owed to that origin.
It is essential that the indication must determine the commodity as originating in a given place, in order to act as GI. Also the qualities, characteristics or reputation of the commodity should be substantially owed to the place of origin.
However, as the qualities rely on the geographical place of production, there is a definite association between the commodity and its original place of production.
