Soller oranges to receive geographical indication mark

Next year, Soller oranges will be given a PGI (protected geographical indication) registration, as a culmination of a campaign led by the Sant Bartomeu Cooperative, which began in 2016. This was initially only concerned with the Canoneta variety, which would have proved to be an obstacle. Miquel Gual, the president of the cooperative, says all varieties grown in the Soller Valley, such as Navelina and Valencia, will be included in the PGI registration. If the PGI had been limited to the Canoneta, "we would have had difficulties in meeting demand for Soller oranges."

With the awarding of the PGI mark, Gual adds that "a very important step" will be taken in differentiating Soller (and Fornalutx) oranges from the rest of the market.
