• Programme

    At the EFLA virtual Workshop dedicated to the topic of Origin labelling and geographical indications, the first presentation, by Mrs Nicole Coutrelis (Coutrelis & Associés), will address the situation in France, including the origin labelling of milk and the judgement of the CJEU on the Lactalis case. This will be followed by a presentation by Mrs Paola Corte (Studio Legale Corte), who will talk us through the Italian approach to origin labelling, to the importance of the designation "Made in Italy" and geographical indications, explaining the practical challenges. The third presentation will be delivered by Prof Andreas Meisterernst (Meisterernst Rechtsanwälte), who will address the German perspective on origin labelling, analysing whether the aim of the approach is consumer information or rather protectionism. The workshop will be concluded with the legal discussion on the presented topics.
