the PDO

PDO stands for Protected Designation of Origin. It’s an award given by the European Commission, designed to protect traditional, regional foods against imitation. For chefs and lovers of fine foods, it’s a guarantee of quality and authenticity.

If you see the words ‘Cornish clotted cream’ on a label, you can be sure that the product inside has been made from our distinctively rich and creamy local milk (a product of Cornwall’s sea breezes, and subtropical climate) and with the traditional cooking method we’ve been using here in Cornwall for generations.
