The Melton Mowbray pork pie may soon be protected by European PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status. This would mean that a Melton Mowbray pork pie could only come from the area around Melton Mowbray - just like the protection given to parma ham and champagne.

Should our regional sausages (eg Cumberland) have the same levels of protection? Please let us know what you think.
