Protected Geographical Indication

Scottish Farmed Salmon has held Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) since 2004.

PGI is awarded by the European Commission and is an initiative which protects and promotes the designation of a quality food or farmed product, linked to the name of a region, a specific location or, in exceptional cases, that of a country.

To hold PGI, Scottish salmon farmers must comply with the criteria laid down in a specification approved by the European Commission and controlled by an independent Certifying Body, Food Certification International Ltd.
