Nowadays, every country in the world claims that their agricultural or traditional products and foods belong to a cultural or gastronomic heritage, as a symbol of the history of a country or a community. Such ‘origin linked products’ have not only a social, but also an economic dimension. They can enhance economic development, living standards, and protection of the environment.
In order to help companies protect and internationalize their origin linked products, CarIPI is organizing a set of e-learning activities in the region, focusing on Geographical Indications and other IPR tools. We want Caribbean business to make the most of their OLPs, and access additional benefits which the GI and IPR systems can bring.
Under this activity, on 16 October CarIPI organised a first webinar on Origin Linked Products targeting producer groups of CARIFORUM. The launch of a set of comprehensive learning modules on this subject matter will follow soon.
