Two New Protected Designations of Origin From Ireland

Two New Protected Designations of Origin From Ireland

The European Commission has approved the addition of two new names from Ireland to the quality register of Protected Designations of Origin (PDO). “Oriel Sea Salt” is harvested from the bay of Port Oriel located in County Louth in the north-eastern part of Ireland. It is almost powder-like to the touch and is naturally crystal white so it does not need to be washed or rinsed.

“Oriel Sea Salt” is affected by the deep water currents, cleanliness, mineral content and purity of the water in this location and of the process used to make, preserve and refine these characteristics. Harvesting of sea salt in Port Oriel dates back centuries when salt was a vital ingredient in preserving fish landed at the harbour for consumption, storage and subsequent transport to market.

Oriel Sea Minerals” which are concentrated sea mineral salts in liquid form also become Protected Designation of Origin today. They represent a good food supplement providing minerals to the body. With these two names, Ireland now has seven food names protected in the EU quality register.
