Anastasiades: A milestone day for Halloumi

Halloumi was designated a product of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) following a relevant EU decision, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades announced on Twitter.

President Anastasiades described today as a milestone day, since the EU member states supported the halloumi dossier, which will now be taken to the College of Commissioners for final approval.

In a Twitter post, President Anastasiades noted that a shield of protection was now in place and significant prospects for increasing exports of their national product were being created for the benefit of all Cypriot producers, Greek and Turkish. It is worth noting that the post was uploaded in both English and Turkish. /ibna
