Our members speak for us

The Idaho Potato Commission is extremely pleased with its membership in oriGIn. The networking opportunities, personal and professional business relationships we have developed and opportunities to solve complex problems through discussion with other members who have “travelled the path” before us is invaluable. The increased recognition of GI’s as a valuable form of Intellectual Property has been significantly advanced through oriGIn’s efforts. GI’s most certainly deliver real economic value to producers who very much benefit from the fine work of oriGIn.

Actualmente oriGIn es, sin duda, una organización imprescindible en el panorama internacional de las Indicaciones Geográficas y una red de contacto de productores de todo el mundo. Gracias a las actividades que oriGIn realiza en ámbito internacional, los Consejos Reguladores españoles han podido tanto defender la reputación de sus productos como establecer contacto con sus homólogos de otros países intercambiando conocimiento y mejores prácticas. En oriGIn hemos unido nuestras fuerzas haciendo frente común para una mejor protección y promoción de nuestros productos .
