No Croatian Products With European Protection

With just weeks separating Croatia from joining the European Union, RTL television reports that not one Croatian product has been protected on a European level. Some of Croatia’s most recognisable products, such as Paski sir (cheese from the island of Pag), are yet to be protected even in Croatia.

Whilst kulen (flavoured sausage) from the Slovenian region is set to become only the 13th protected product in Croatia, there are concerns that no Croatian products have been protected on a European level and only one application – for prsut (smoked ham) from the Istria region – has been submitted.

After the debacle that surrounded the traditional Croatian dessert wine Prosek, which can no longer be marketed under that name in the EU because of its similarity to the protected Italian sparking wine Prosecco, the question is will other Croatian products be left vulnerable without European protection.
