European Charter of mountain food products

Are you looking for the updated Charter?

In 2016, we updated the 2005 European Charter for Mountain Quality Food Products. Information about the new Charter can be found here and you can sign the new Charter here. Thank you for supporting mountain food products.

What is the European Charter for Mountain Quality Food Products ?

It’s an European policy charter which translates the intention of its signatories to characterise, protect and promote mountain quality food products and thus to contribute to the sustainable development of the economies and territories of Europe’s mountain regions.

The Charter was elaborated following the research project on quality food products 2002-2004 coordinated by Euromontana. The Charter has been approved by the members of the board of director of Euromontana. The launch of the Charter and the official signing ceremony took place on the 7th December in the European Parliament, in Brussels.
