Turkish-Cypriots Create Controversy Over Halloumi Cheese

HALLOUMIThe Turkish-Cypriot community objected to halloumi cheese protected designation of origin (PDO) status and claims a separate production control mechanism in the Turkish-occupied territories.
Cyprus first made an application to secure PDO status for halloumi cheese in July 2014. Halloumi is the best-known food product of Cyprus internationally and very important for the island’s economy. However, the term “hellim” — the Turkish-Cypriot name for halloumi — is included in the PDO name to cover the whole of the country.
The Turkish-Cypriot claim has created a problem between Nicosia and other European Union member-states over the product’s PDO.
