South African Products - Names Protected Under New Agreement

The names of a selection of South African products are now protected under a new agreement with the European Union (EU). It follows from a bilateral protocol on geographic indicators negotiated between the republic and the EU.

South Africa said 102 wine names would be protected under the agreement and three agricultural product names, namely rooibos, Karoo lamb, and honeybush tea.

In addition, an economic partnership agreement between the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and EU has been negotiated.
