What is Geographical Indication?
A geographical indication is a name or sign used to indicate that certain product corresponds to a specific geographical location which may be a town or a region, a country. The use of a GI tag acts as a certification that the product possesses certain qualities, is made according to traditional methods or enjoys a certain reputation, due to its geographical origin. e.g. Mahabaleshwar Strawberry, Darjeeling Tea, etc.
“Our aim is to create opportunities for farmers/producers by registering their fiercely guarded traditional products and improve their income leading to sustainable development”
We have reorganized the approach of producers and consumers of looking at quality products and assurance of quality thereof. Registering a GI can have a positive impact on the production and employment within the region, allowing producers to market the product at a premium price.Having registered almost one-tenth of India’s Geographical Indications, we are the Pioneers in this field. Our dedicated efforts placed Maharashtra at the zenith of registered agricultural GIs in India.
