Poultry Veal Product Given PGI Status

13 January 2015

BELGIUM - The European Commission has approved a new Belgian product to be added to the register of Protected Geographical Indications (PGIs).

Potjesvlees uit de Westhoek is a slightly sour preparation made of three types of white meats (chicken, veal and rabbit) in light jelly.

Based on a household recipe used originally for dishes for summer fairs, Potjevlees is now produced throughout the year by local butchers in the Westhoek region of West Flanders, near the Belgian coast.

The denomination will be added to the list of more than 1,250 products already protected.
