Prodotto agroalimentare tradizionale
Prodotto agroalimentare tradizionale, usually abbreviated to PAT, is an official approval for traditional Italian regional food products similar to the Protected Geographical Status of the European Union. A list of approved products is published by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. It lists only products that do not qualify for pan-European approval, and as such PAT is only applicable within Italy.
The denomination is attributed by each regional government, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. Tuscany is currently the region with the most PAT products.
