Mozambique Exporting goat meat
A key instrument in both the protection and marketing of such goods is "Geographical Indication", a standard obtained for products that are uniquely tied to where they are made, grown or harvested. GIs are part of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) run by the World Trade Organization (WTO).
Mozambique goat meat is one of 13 products from the world’s poorest countries that have been backed by the United Nations to secure coveted Geographical Indication (GI) status. It comes from grass-fed livestock that also graze on baobab fruit during the dry season. This diet is the reason for the uniquely fruity and sweet flavor of the meat. UNCTAD has claimed a GI status could help to increase the price and support economy.
