Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

A PDO “Protected Designation of Origin” is a geographic term that identifies a product that has its origin in a certain place or region and whose characteristics are exclusive to that specific geographic place in which the product is produced, including human and natural factors.

The Azorean Pineapple is a PDO product since 1996. This means that it fulfills all the production and commercialization requirements that testify the quality and provenance of the product.

The PDO label placed in the crown of the Best Pineapple in the World attests that its production has been supervised by the Agricultural Market and Nutrition Institute.
