Famed Cornish oysters given EU protected status alongside Stilton & Clotted cream


#AceFoodNews – Dec.11: Fal Oyster Ltd cleared to claim protected designation of origin status – the same afforded to Stilton cheese and Cornish clotted cream

For centuries fishermen and women have gathered oysters from the river Fal in Cornwall using only sail or oar to propel their vessels. Now the delicacy boasts the same sort of European Union protection afforded to the producers of Stilton cheese, Shetland lamb and Jersey royal potatoes.

Chris Ranger, who runs Fal Oyster Ltd, has been cleared to claim PDO (protected designation of origin) status for his molluscs.
