Fenland Celery Gains PGI Status
G’s are delighted to announce that Fenland Celery joined an exclusive club on 15th October when it became the first English vegetable to be given the coveted Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status. Made by the European Commission under the European Protected Food Names (PFN) scheme, the award follows a four-year application process and also makes Fenland Celery the 55th British food product to earn recognition for its quality, history and links to the local area.
Grown using traditional varieties and cultivation methods, Fenland Celery is a premium crop only available from October to December. It has recently been revived for commercial markets by G’s, who have grown celery in the Isle of Ely in Cambridgeshire for over 60 years.
