AOP
AOP

AOP is an official certification label of origin and quality. This logo is easily recognized thanks to its red and gold colors. It can only be granted by public authorities and to groups of producers gathered in a federative structure: Organisme de Défense et de Gestion (Defence and Management Organisation).

The Protected Designation of Origin has been historically created to fight against fraud (law of 1905). Then the label became Controlled Designation of Origin in 1935 and was open to  all agricultural and food products in 1990.

Since May, 1, 2009 the European logo PDO has been mandatory for European food products of which production, processing and development are made in a defined geographical area  according to  a recognised know-how and specifications. Only wines can remain under the label AOC -Controlled designation of origin (decree EU 01/01/2012)
