Remarks by the Government Spokesman on the origin of halloumi cheese

We all have to join forces, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots together, in order to protect our product from foreign imitators, the Government Spokesman, Mr Nikos Christodoulides, said today. Invited to comment on the issue of the validation of the name origin of the halloumi cheese, the Spokesman assured that the Government follows the issue closely in collaboration with Brussels and the competent Cypriot authorities. He said that “we are aware that Mr Eide had discussed the issue, among others, during his contacts in Brussels and we are also aware of the fact that the Turkish Cypriots have for some time now made repeated demarches expressing unjustified and untimely concerns. We have done all that is necessary, making clear to everyone that the application for the registration of a name of origin is the right of all EU member states. - 21.12.2014
