The sausage makers of Cumberland and Lincolnshire have applied to the EU for protected of their geographical status. The latter have applied for Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) - this means that they must be made in the county at at least one stage of their production. Cumberland have applied for the higher classification of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) - this means they will have to be completely made in that county, by traditional methods. Manufacturers not complying with these rules, won't be able to use these titles.
