Board

The Regulatory Board is a body which looks after the quality of the product.

In early 1996 the European Union registered Majorcan sobrasada as a product of Protected Geographical Indication, extending its originally Spain-wide protected status to the whole of the EU countries.

The protection of the Specific Designation, the application of the rules and the promotion and control of Majorcan sobrasada are all the responsibility of the Regulatory Board.

Functions of the regulatory board

Monitoring compliance with the Majorcan sobrasada production, manufacturing and curing requirements, in order to maintain the essential distinctive characteristics of the product.

Product quality control, by means of inspecting the producers’ facilities and applying stringent physical, chemical and sensory analyses carried out by our tasting experts.

Controlling the indigenous black Balearic pig to ensure its suitable feeding and rearing.
