In October 2010 Wallonia approved ‘Saucisson d’Ardenne’ as a protected geographical indication (PGI). TerBeke, along with a number of other companies, challenged that decision. According to them, ‘Saucisson d’Ardenne’ had become a generic name.
However, the objection was rejected completely. The court was of the opinon that the region’s reputation for salted meats, the Ardennes origin and the number of established butchers in the Ardennes, are very important factors.
Butchers and other meat makers should seek other names for their salted sausages.
