EU registers halloumi as Cyprus’ Protected Designation of Origin (P.D.O) product

The European Union registered Monday Cyprus’ traditional cheese halloumi as a product of Protected Designation of Origin (P.D.O), after many years of efforts on behalf of the Republic of Cyprus.

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades in his Twitter account referred to a milestone day for halloumi and the country.

“A milestone day for #Halloumi/#Hellim and our country. The EU has registered it as #PDO. A shield of protection is now in place. Significant prospects for increasing exports of our national product, to the benefit of all Cypriot producers, Greek and Turkish,” says the President in a message in Greek, English and Turkish.
