These are products that have a Geographical Indication granted by the National Institute of Industrial Property. In other words, they are foods with specific characteristics and a reputation consecrated by the place of origin, which also includes wines from the Campanha Gaúcha region of Rio Grande do Sul and cassava flour from Cruzeiro do Sul, in Acre.
