AOC stands for ‘Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée’ which translates as ‘controlled name of origin’. AOC is an official quality typically reserved for products which are rooted in a region that gives them a specific and unique flavour. They guarantee the authenticity of products developed through traditional skills. An AOC product is fully produced in its region of origin. In general, AOC products bear the name of the geographical region to which they belong and it is therefore important that the name is used only for products that meet the conditions.
