A SCHEME to label quality Slovak-origin food products has changed. As of the beginning of 2013 two levels have been introduced, the TASR newswire reported in mid December.

The Quality Mark SK (Značka kvality SK) used until last year has now become the Quality Mark SK Gold (Značka kvality SK Gold) for high-quality Slovak products. The Quality Mark SK (Značka kvality SK) is now used to mark Slovak products containing at least 75 percent Slovak ingredients and which are produced in Slovakia, the TASR newswire wrote.

The Quality Mark has been used since 2004 and is supposed to guarantee the high quality of Slovak-origin agricultural food products.
