What DOP means
The acronym DOP stands for “Denominazione di Origine Protetta”, the Italian equivalent of “Protected Designation of Origin” (PDO). The law guarantees that only products genuinely originating in that region, are allowed to be merchantable as such. The purpose of the law is to protect the reputation of the regional foods and eliminate the unfair and misleading competition of consumers by non-genuine products, which may be of an inferior quality or of a different flavour.
In order to be qualified for a DOP product, it must have qualities and characteristics which are essentially due to its region of production; it must also be produced, processed and prepared exclusively within that region.
To produce DOP products, it is necessary to follow the strict rules of the disciplinary of production of every DOP product.
The olive “La Bella della Daunia DOP” represents an excellent example of Italian products, protected by this prestigious European seal of quality.
