EU’s protection of Grana cheese

Posted on 16/09/2007 · Posted in counterfeiting, food, legislation

In case T. 291/03 the Court of First Istance of the European Community ruled that the word “Grana” is not generic, but is substantial part of the protected designation of originGrana Padano“. 

The Consorzio del Grana Padano consequently obtained that the trade mark application of “Grana Biraghi” was declared invalid.
