Genuine Taste Has No Imitation Asiago PDO & Speck Alto Adige PGI Unique, Authentic, Guaranteed The PDO and PGI symbols were designed under European Law to designate regional foods using geographical indicators. The legislation for these seals was formed in 1992 to ensure that only products that originate within the specified European Union regions are allowed to establish themselves as such. The laws apply to a wide range of products produced in Italy, including authentic Speck Alto Adige and Asiago. These two products from Northern Italy embody European agricultural production that is characterized by the PGI and PDO quality seals. To qualify for a PGI or PDO seal, a product must comply with the European Union's standards with regard to the name and description of the product, the definition of the geographical area, the methods of preparation, factors relating to the geographic environment, the inspection bodies, details of how the product is labeled and any legislative requirements that must be met.
