Alternative agri-food geographies? Geographic indications in Greece
Royal Dutch Geographical Society, 2010. - pp. 220-235

Périodique : Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie, No. 2, Vol. 102

Résumé : The discussion about alternative agri-food products has led some researchers to proclaim the
emergence of alternative agri-food geographies. This paper focuses on the geography of certified
geographical indications in Greece. We focus on a number of key characteristics of the products
(e.g. area of production, production in less favoured areas) and analyse specific case studies of
products, in order to understand their importance and impact (e.g. volume of production,
number of businesses that produce them) and investigate the choices of this geography. Evidence
suggests that some Greek geographical indications (GIs) exist only ‘on paper’ and therefore have
zero impact on their delimited areas. Furthermore, the impact of GIs depends not only on the
characteristics of the product but on the characteristics of the enterprises that produce them as
well. A new, although not alternative, agri-food geography is emerging.
