If the status is given to the Slavonian Kulen, which is a flavoured sausage made of minced pork, it will mean that the product carrying the kulen name must be traditionally or at least partially manufactured within the region the Protected Geographical Indication label suggests – in this case Slavonia.

The  Association of Kulen Producers says that they expect to have a decision on their application by the end of the year.
