WHAT IS GI?

A geographical indication (GI) is a name or sign used on products which corresponds to a specific geographical location or origin (e.g. a town, region, or country). The use of a geographical indication may act as a certification that the product possesses certain qualities, is made according to traditional methods, or enjoys a certain reputation, due to its geographical origin.

Geographical indications are generally traditional products, produced by rural communities over generations, that have gained a reputation on the markets for their specific qualities. The recognition and protection on the markets of the names of these products allows the community of producers to invest in maintaining the specific qualities of the product on which the reputation is built. It may also allow them to invest together in promoting the reputation of the product.

A visual inspection doesn’t reveal many differences, but there are huge differences — and they have a direct impact on your health and the planet. Unlike natural and other eco-label claims, only organic offers government-backed assurance that products are grown and processed without the use of toxic chemicals, antibiotics, and synthetic growth hormones.

Additionally, when you buy Originals from Indian GI, you help source the products directly from the farmers to your doorstep, thus contributing in overall community growth and sustainable development.
