Commercial agreement with China

A new positive development has been reached with the commercial agreement between Europe and China. This commercial agreement with China guarantees the protection of Balsamic Vinegar on the Chinese market.

In recent days, a new agreement has been stipulated between Brussels and Beijing which provides for the mutual recognition and protection of 100 PGI and PDO branded food products.

26 food excellence including Balsamic Vinegar of Modena will be protected in the People’s Republic of China. A product exported to 120 countries in the world and one of the main ambassadors of Made in Italy.

The agreement is now being examined by the European Parliament and could enter into force by the end of 2020.

Protection of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

The result obtained with China is not the only one during the last months.

The bilateral pact previously signed with Vietnam will be active in a few days.

At the same time, the work to complete the texts of the agreements with Mexico and Korea continue.

These results are important for the protection of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. They constitute the main instrument to protect and unequivocally globally recognize our food excellence.

Great satisfaction was expressed by the top management of the Balsamic Vinegar Protection Consortium of Modena. Director Federico Desimoni reaffirmed the importance of the agreement and the will of the Consortium in promoting and continuing the product protection policy towards international institutions.

We remind you that 50% of the production is exported to non-European countries. Guarantee the protection of Balsamic means not only helping the manufacturing companies but also all the staff involved.

We believe that the efforts made have given good results. Our “black gold” has always been included in the lists of Italian PGI and PDO products chosen by the European Community.

We are happy and satisfied to tell you this news.
We will certainly keep you informed in case of new developments.

Greetings from Modena.
