Description

Modern consumers expect accurate information about the geographical origins of their food. Producers want protection against competitors who free ride on the hard-earned reputation of their unique products. The European model of GI protection pursues these twin goals, but has not been adopted in Australia, except in the wine industry. This Colloquium investigates how the European experience can inform the local debate about more effective protection for local brands and rural communities.
