The Organization for an International Geographical Indications Network - oriGIn - is a non-for-profit Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) based in Geneva. Established in 2003, oriGIn is today a truly global alliance of Geographical Indications (GIs) from a large variety of sectors, representing some 500 associations of producers and other GI-related institutions  from 40 countries.

oriGIn’s goals are to:

    • Campaign for the effective legal protection and enforcement of GIs at the national, regional and international level, through campaigns aimed at decision-makers, the media and the public at large;
    • Promote GIs as a sustainable development tool for producers and communities.
