Bryndza sheep cheese to acquire European trademark

Slovakia's quest to acquire another protected geographical designation in Brussels for a food product looks set to become a reality, as no other European Union country has objected to its request for a European trademark for its bryndza sheep's cheese, the European Commissioner for Agriculture's Office said on April 7.

Slovakia's quest to acquire another protected geographical designation in Brussels for a food product looks set to become a reality, as no other European Union country has objected to its request for a European trademark for its bryndza sheep's cheese, the European Commissioner for Agriculture's Office said on April 7.

The six-month response period ended at midnight on April 4 without any objections, meaning that that European Commission can now begin internal procedures aimed at officially registering the product within weeks. Bryndza is set to become the second Slovak food product to be officially registered by the EU, after the 'Skalica trdelník' cake.

Other products, for which Slovakia is seeking registration are the Parenica and Slovenský Oštiepok cheeses, several types of sausage, and a long-life salami.
