08 : 45 AM - 09/07/2018
Abu Dhabi, July 9 (BNA): The United Arab Emiratis (UAE) is one of the largest importers of European cheese according to the latest statistics from the European Union, with 18,485 tonnes imported in 2017. Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan and Kuwait also underscored the popularity of cheese, importing 17,900 tonnes of French cheese alone.
In order to ensure the quality of European cheese and to support the growth ambitions of exporters, the European Union (EU) has developed a programme dedicated to the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) quality labelling. This provides safe and high-quality products for consumers. The mark identifies a product originating in a specific place or region, Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported.
