OUR CERTIFIED LABELS
The Label Rouge is a national sign that designates products which, by their production or manufacturing conditions, have a higher level of quality than other similar products usually marketed.
Quality, in this case, refers to the set of properties and characteristics of a product, and gives it its ability to satisfy implicit or explicit needs.
In addition to the sensory characteristics of the Label Rouge product and their perception by the consumer, the superior quality is based on :
- production conditions, which differ from the production conditions of similar products usually marketed,
- the image of the product with regard to its production conditions,
- elements of presentation or service.

L'INDICATION GÉOGRAPHIQUE PROTÉGÉE (IGP) identifies an agricultural product, raw or processed, whose quality, reputation or other characteristics are linked to its geographical origin.
The IGP applies to the agricultural, food and wine sectors.
The IGP is linked to existing technical knowledge. It gives the production a protection and a reputation on a national but also international scale.
The IGP can be based on the reputation of the product, which is understood in the sense of a strong public recognition at a given time, and which must be associated with specific knowledge or a quality attributable to the geographical origin.
The rules for developing a IGP are set out in specifications and are subject to control procedures implemented by an independent body approved by the INAO.
