In the European Union (including Estonia) manufacturers and service providers can apply for various certificates and quality labels for their products or services. The aim of such various certificates and quality labels is to provide information with regard to quality or origin of the offer, point to the production technique based on long-standing traditions, lineage of the product, its environmental aspects, etc.
On one hand the aim of such labels it to protect interests of product manufacturers or service providers, while on other hand – to make selection process easier for buyers or guests and to provide sense of confidence.
On the website of the Estonian Culinary Route you will find introductory information about the labels designed for caterers. Any labels issued to the specific caterer are displayed next to its introductory text.
