Slavonian Kulen Producers Want EU Geographical Protection

KulenThe famous flavored sausage ‘Kulen’, traditionally produced in the eastern Croatian region of Slavonia, may soon get its own Geographical Protection label…

On Friday the Association of Kulen Producers in Vinkovci submitted a request to the Croatian Ministry of Agriculture asking them to initiate a procedure within the European Union to get the Slavonian kulen the Protected Geographical Indication label. 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.
