New application for designation of origin and geographic indications
The Araucaria region has requested the recognition of two designation of origin for “Prosciutto del Capitan Pastene” and “Piñon de la Araucaria Andina” and two geographic indications for “Angolino Traditional Tomato” and “Merkén of the Nahuelbuta range”.
These four applications are the first ones that the PTO has received within the program “Sello de origen”. This program was launched in 2011 by the PTO and the Ministry of Economy. The main goal of this project is to encourage the use and protection of the Chilean products by registering designation of origins and/or geographic indications.
