"QUOTE FROM THIS MORNINGS METRO"
First it was Parma ham, French Champagne, and Newcastle Brown Ale. Now, feta cheese has secured legal protection.
The white salty cheese made from sheeps milk should only be called Feta if it is made in certain parts of Greece, a judge has ruled.
German and Danish - and even Yorkshire - producers have cqalled for the protection, which Greek feta has enjoyed since 2002 to be lifted.
Denmark is Europes second largestproducer of feta making about 30,000 tonnes a year - some of it for export, ironically to Greece. Cheese producers living in "non feta" parts of Greece also stand to lose out - they will have to call their goods by another name.
Still tastes good to me!!!
