Traditional Agro-Food Products of Malta

The concept of traditional Agricultural-Food Products is subject to interpretation as everyone has a different idea of what traditional really means. One can interpret traditional as something being a typical dish only prepared and served in Malta. Whilst others may include various foods brought in by foreigners and integrated throughout the years as a Maltese product. To address this issue, a legal notice was drafted to define what constitutes traditional products and a board will be having the final say following a public consultation procedure. The purpose of an official register is to serve as an official reference to the genuine traditional agro-food products.
