Labelling mountain food products in Europe

Cover labelling mountain products report 2017

Labelling mountain food products in Europe beyond the simple quality distinction, an opportunity to join forces and build resilient food systems.

This study was carried out by Alice Dos Santos, a former Euromontana trainee, and is a continuation of her work on mountain products at Euromontana.

It aims to better understand the links between the labelling of mountain products, their valorisation and territorial development. Elements such as territorial anchorage, governance and marketing strategy have been analysed in different mountain areas.

The study also provides an in-depth analysis of 3 case studies: the PDO Comté cheese (France), the Eusko label of the Basque Country (Spain) and the Pro Montagna brand of the Coop supermarkets (Switzerland).
