The European Commission has approved the addition of a new product from the United Kingdom to the quality register of Protected Geographical Indications (PGI). ‘Traditional Welsh Caerphilly’, also called ‘Traditional Welsh Caerffili’ (both terms are protected) is a white, hard cheese with a mild slightly lemony taste.

It is made in Wales from pasteurised or raw milk produced on Welsh farms and is actually the only native cheese of this region. The cheese is to be eaten young from 10 days old or can be matured for up to 6 months. During the 19th century dairy schools were estab­lished throughout Wales to educate cheese producers and to pass on the specific skills and knowledge required. This new denomination will be added to the list of over 1420 products already protected.
