La marque d’origine : la notion de terroir appliquée aux produits d’origine américains, le cas des oignons de Vidalia

Abstract : Geographical indications differentiate products as having superior quality because of their origins. In Europe, a certified labeling system is based on the French idea of “terroir”, meaning that natural and human factors as well as traditional know-how contribute to a product’s quality. This system has been associated with positive economic, social and environmental side-effects for the local community. In the US, geographical names are registered as brands with no special consideration. Under both systems producers share a name, but only in Europe does the idea of “terroir” limit production to traditional practices. Through the study of Vidalia Onions, an American origin product, we see a collective effort to protect quality that brings about positive side effects for the community. However, obstacles such as non-qualitative developments and industry monopolization limit the positive effects of this collective geographical brand.
