Six products from East China's Anhui province were approved as national geographic indications (GIs), bringing the total number to 78, local authorities said.

The new GIs are Xiaoxian Grape, Sixian Dalukou Sweet Potato, Anqing Shuxi Bamboo Mat, Linhuan Pickled Cucumbers, Ma’anshan Hanmei Green Tea and Zongyang Meiya Duck, the Anhui Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision said, citing an announcement from the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, the country’s top quality watchdog.

23 townships in Xiaoxian county enjoy the protection of the GI of Xiaoxian Grape, which is full of nutrients like vitamins ( A1, B1 and B2), carotene and 10-plus amino acids.

Grown in Sixian county, Sixian Dalukou Sweet Potato not only tastes good, but is also rich in nutrients.

Wanghe, Youba and Meicheng townships in Qianshan county are known for Anqing Shuxi Bamboo Mat, while seven townships in Huaibei city including Linhuan boast Linhuan Pickled Cucumbers.

The GI of Ma’anshan Hanmei Green Tea is under protection in Qingxi and five other townships in Hanshan county.

Zongyang Meiya Duck, an about 60-cm-long cyan and white duck, is protected as a GI in 12 towns in Zongyang county.

The protection of GIs can be dated back to 100-plus years ago when the French government endorsed many French wines with a stamp which acted as official certification of the origins and standards of the products. Nowadays, it emerges as part of the World Trade Organization (WTO)'s system for the protection of intellectual property rights.
