Erzurum Commodity Exchange had received Geographical Indication Certificates for Civil Cheese, Göğermiş Cheese and Stuffed Kadayıf with its application to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (TURKPATENT) in previous years.
By adding “Erzurum Water Cheese Pastry” (Erzurum Su Böreği) to this list, Erzurum Commodity Exchange has now protected another product that has become synonymous with the region.
Erzurum Commodity Exchange made an application for Erzurum Su Böreği in January 2019.
Erzurum Commodity Exchange took another important step towards branding and promotion of Erzurum by registering “Erzurum Water Cheese Pastry” (Erzurum Su Böreği) from the Geographical Indication Certificate (TURKPATENT).
“We must increase our registered local products”
Stating that they must increase the number of registered products, Erzurum Commodity Exchange Chairman Hakan Oral said, “Turkey’s agricultural potential, production culture, geographical structure and the cultural diversity of traditional and local products are so rich that Turkey is one of the world’s richest countries in this respect.”
