IGP Status of Authentic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

The producers of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena have achieved impressive success with a local product now loved around the world. But like many valuable ideas, Aceto Balsamico di Modena needs protection. Imitations abound, and they lack the guarantee of quality that distinguishes every bottle of Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP. By securing the IGP designation, or Indicazione Geografica Protetta, for their product, the Aceto Balsamico producers of Modena and Reggio Emilia have taken action to protect and inform consumers and preserve their own heritage.
