Pag lamb meat is now Protected Designation of Origin!

‘Paška janjetina’ (Pag lamb meat) from Croatia is now Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)!

It is fresh meat obtained from young male and female suckling lambs born on the island of Pag of an autochthonous Croatian breed of sheep (‘Paška ovca’), bred solely on the island of Pag. Due to the mild Mediterranean climate, the sheep and their lambs spend their life outdoors, day and night, in the Bora wind and the sunshine, in unpolluted pastures and fresh sea air, which affects the quality of the meat, distinguishing it from the meat of lambs on the mainland.
