STUDIES ON THE MANAGEMENT OF THE INTEGRATION OF QUALITY SCHEMES FOR AGRI-FOOD PRODUCTS
Quality systems established at Union or national level, including farm certification schemes for agricultural and food products, provide consumers with assurances about the quality and characteristics of the products or the production process used as a result of farmers' participation in these schemes, confer added value to the products concerned and increase their market opportunities.Until June 2022, Romania received, from the European Union, the proof of registration in the Register of Protected Designations of Origin and Protected Geographical Indications of the product "Telemea de Ibăneşti", as well as of the wines "Insuraței" and "Adamclisi" as products with the Designation of Protected Origin (PDO). Also, the products registered as PGI were: "Salam de Sibiu", "Cârnaţi de Pleșcoi", "Magiun de prune Topoloveni", "Novacafumat din Tara Bârsei", "Scrumbie de Dunăreafumată" and "Salad with pike roe from Tulcea". The only product registered as STG was the product "Salată cu icre de știucă de Tulcea".In Romania until June 2022, five documents were published in the eAmbrosia database for the registration of 5 food products that come from 3 classes, respectively: Class 1.2. Meat products (boiled, salted, smoked) - "Salinate de Turda"; Class 2.3. Bakery products, pastry products, confectionery products, biscuits - "Pita de Pecica"; Wines - "Drăgășani", "Bohotin", "Terasele Dunării".
