What is a PGI?

The Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) is a European recognition guaranteeing the link between a product and a territory. The PGI "Brittany-made buckwheat flour® PGI" is held by the Defence and Management Organisation (ODG in France) entitled Blé Noir Tradition Bretagne and encompasses three entities:

1) Producers

2) Storage organisations

3) Millers.

The specifications detailing required production conditions must be complied with by each operator.

As such, thanks to the PGI "Brittany-made buckwheat flour® PGI", consumers are ensured that the buckwheat was grown, stored and crushed, and that the resulting flour was produced in Brittany, including Historical Brittany and the Loire-Atlantique department.

Just like any other product with identified quality and origin, inspections are carried out by independent organisations - to ensure compliance with the conditions and authorised production area.
