EU Sends Australia List of 400 Products They Want Protected under Trade Deal

SYDNEY – The European Union sent Australia a list of more than 400 products which they want designated as Protected Designation of Origin as part of negotiations for a bilateral trade agreement between Canberra and the bloc, the Australian government said on Tuesday.

The list for protection based on geographical indicators includes 172 food products and 236 alcoholic drinks, including staples of Spanish gastronomy such as Manchego cheese, nougat from Alicante, the ham of Tureul, paprika from La Vera Region, saffron from La Mancha, Brandy de Jerez, the Pacharan Navarro and orujo from Galicia.

Other proposed products include feta cheese, which originates in Greece, gruyere and Roquefort cheese from France, gorgonzola and parmigiano reggiano from Italy and Scotch beef and Scotch lamb, among others.

In some cases, the EU list avoids generic names such as brie cheese or prosciutto, and provides specific names such as Brie de Meaux (France) and Prosciutto di Parma, Prosciutto di San Daniele and Prosciutto Toscano (Italy).

“Whilst we understand the importance the EU places on geographical indications, our priority is ensuring our farmers and businesses can get better market access and be more competitive in the EU,” Australian Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Simon Birmingham said in a statement.

The list was published following the announcement of a three-month consultation period between the Australian government and the country’s farmers and exporters on the negotiations with the EU, which began last year.

The European bloc – which has over 500 million consumers – is Australia’s second-largest trading partner, third-largest export destination, and second-largest services export market, according to the statement.

Last year, Australia and the EU exchanged goods and services worth $73.68 billion.
