The rich, succulent mango variation Banganapalle from Andhra Pradesh has now received its due share of recognition. The mango that is relished by millions has now claimed its geographical indication tag.
The tag was accorded by Registrar of Geographical Indications Registry, Chennai, after an application was filed from Horticulture Commissioner, Andhra Pradesh. The Andhra Pradesh government is the registered proprietor of the GI tag for mangoes, often hailed as “the king of fruits.”
GI tag signifies Banganapalle’s real origin. This tag indicates that the product comes from a specific region.
A specific logo is also in place which features a bright yellow fruit around which the tagline says “Banganappalle Mangoes of Andhra Pradesh,” where images of a man and a woman appearing to be farmers are seen.
A GI is covered under the Intellectual Property Rights and the Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights.
