Greggs Bakery might have to rename their Cornish Pasty after the EU has given the food a Protected Geographical Indication status. According to the EU,
the pasties must be made west of the River Tamar in order to qualify as authentic Cornish Pasties. Until Greggs can adjust to the requirements of the new PGI status, they are considering calling their pasties “the pasty formerly known as Cornish”!. Along with the geographical requirements, Cornish Pasties will also have to follow the traditional recipe as defined by the Cornish Pasty Association. What do you think? Is the pasty PGI status important, or does it not matter where the food is made as long as it is warm and delicious?
