PDO for San Marzano tomato: tighter definition

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE EU has approved changes to the production requirements for the San Marzano tomato protected designation of origin (PDO) (Pomodoro San Marzano dell'agro Sarnese-Nocerino), to include a stricter definition of the fruit's characteristics and extension of the PDO to filleted tomato products. The modifications to the PDO for the typical Italian product also involve geographic production area, production conditions, labelling and col-our characteristics.
