The sweet pizza-shaped pastry called Frgál, traditionally produced in the Czech Wallachia region, will soon be placed on the EU’s protected regional food specialities list. The association of Wallachian traditional bakers announced on Wednesday that the registration process has been completed successfully, and Valašské Frgály should appear on the list of products with EU’s Protected Geographical Indication within a few weeks. This means that products using this particular name will have to come from bakeries located in a specific area. Among Czech food products which previously received the regional protected status from the EU are Pardubice gingerbread (Pardubický perník), spa wafers from Karlovy Vary and Mariánské Lázně as well as Czech beer.
